The ONE on the earth
Sometimes, I feel that Nature talks to me.
Of course there cannot be such a thing.
It is always silent.
The gentle breeze of the spring...
Clouds and the flower are blown away by it.
The King of the flower in the Orient, Peony (牡丹).
Male of animals 牡 (bo) + Vermilion 丹 (tan)
The people of the ancient times might have watched his figure.
And they might have heard his voice...
This kanji character is good for the King. It is Graceful.
散りてのち おもかげに立つ 牡丹かな
与謝 蕪村 (1716-1783)
After you left... as it used to look so peony
Yosa Buson (1716-1783)
