The delights of plowed ground with " Green " Japanese calligraphy

   Summer morning has the feeling of the pulse.
   The boiling of the life.

   The upbringing continues without cease.

   The morning sun gives the power to paddy-rice.
   The farmers concentrate wisdom at this moment.

   The long history.

   Clouds protect us.
   The wind. That time.

   I will hug the flow.

   They are our great joy.

   This color symbolizes it.
