"Leaf" Japanese calligraphy

"" (yō, ha). It is translated as leaf, petal, etc.
This character is written by Kanzi, Semi-cursive script

Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
葉 ⇒ 枼 (table) + 艸 (grass)

The leaves have the fate they leave momentarily.

The West and the Orient.
The both may have the same recognition toward this word.
The impression is good for this season.

The moment of fallen leaves turns red and yellow most.
It is a sign of the winter, and a mystery of the Nature.


  1. Me encanta la caligrafía. Gracias por cuanta información expones. Todo un placer. Saludos

  2. Sorprendente la etimologia, aunque tiene su sentido.

  3. Fallen leaves with all those glorious shades of gold and red are the proof of mystery of Nature!
    Beautiful image.

  4. It seems as though a leaf caught in a breeze . . . or a petal falling.

  5. Qué bellos árboles, colores fascinantes, irreales!

  6. Le mystère toujours un mystère que cette calligraphie ! Bye

  7. That calligraphy seems quite flamboyant - suitable for those bright red leaves on your earlier post!!

    Ruma, you must email me the calligraphy for grandmother...I just heard the news at our Thanksgiving that I will have my first grandchild in late July. I am so excited.
