Poem by Ariwara no Narihira

If there were no
cherry blossoms
in this world,
my heart in spring
should be calmer.

This beautiful work is an excellent example of East meets West with traditional Japanese elements on Western-style materials. We think the result is something extra special.

Ariwara no Narihira (在原 業平, 825–880)

世の中に
絶えて桜の
なかりせば
春の心は
のどけからまし
yononaka ni
taete sakura no
nakariseba
haru no kokoro wa
nodokekaramashi
If there were no cherry blossoms
in this world,
my heart in spring
should be calmer.

This art appeared in the 27th Annual Fine Art Show in Shelton WA in March of 2017.

This is an original work, not a print, and was brushed by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase.
