Life is Short

jinsei wa mijikai

12 1/4″ W x 43″ H Japanese Scroll
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase


Life is Short in Japanese is 人生は短い which is read jinsei wa mijikai

The Japanese phrase jinsei wa mijikai meaning “Life is Short” is composed of the words 人生 (read jinsei) meaning “life”, the grammatical element (read wa) here acting like “is”, and 短い (read mijikai) meaning “short”.

This beautiful art reminds us to live each moment to the fullest and to treasure the time we have.
