January Shodo

I kind of like my kanji submission this month. I still feel awkward and clumsy with the size, especially with the non-cursive style I have to use. But this month was fun if not skillful.

Below is my kana submission. While I think I could have done better, I feel like I know more specifically why and where I could have done better. Maybe that means I’m gaining a better sense for it?

The above would be written like the following in hiragana

さくらばなはるくははれるとしだにも

ひとのこころにあかれやはする

Or in a mix of kanji and hiragana

桜花春くははれる年だにも

人の心にあかれやはする

According to wakastream.jp this particular Waka means

桜花よ、春の日が多い年だけでも人の心にもう十分であると思われるようにしないのであろうか

Cherry blossoms, don’t you think it seems enough for the hearts of people even in years with many spring days
