Leisurely Clouds in Japanese is 閑雲 which is read kan’un

In Zen poetry clouds are often used as a metaphor for a “life of nonattachment”. Indeed kan’un is used today as the first part of the four kanji idiom kan’un’yakaku (literally, “leisurely clouds, cranes in the field”) meaning “free from worldly cares”.

These designs were inspired by the calligraphy of Master Zen philosopher Bankei (1622-1693).
