Shigajiku are Japanese Poem Paintings in the
grand tradition of the Chinese literati. Your Shigajiku may
commemorate an event such as the first blossoms of spring.
Relationships are excellent for Shigajiku and you might want to
speak of a dear friendship.
Ishikawa Jozan (1583-1672) was a student of classical Chinese
poetry and said, 'with rare books to read, no unending nights, this
quiet spot is deep within the mountains. My world is apart from the
world of men. I don't concern myself with their 'right' and 'wrong'.
Think you don't know what to say?
'My spirit remains still,
if I speak....
The silence is broken.'
'The stillness fills me with awe
and joy floods my heart.'
Go for it! and Thank You
