Emperor Daigo ordered 4 poets to make a “Collection of Japanese Poems”
In 905 (other theory shows it was 912), 1111 poems were published.
These translations are very basic. Each piece has a very deep poetic meaning that is difficult to translate to English. If you would like know more about a specific one, please ask.
Fan Shape [Large Horizontal]
In the woodland close to the village only the evening cicada's sound and wind visit the area
Susuki grass looks like a sleeve in the autumn inviting me
The wind blows the aroma of the yellow partinia flower, signalling the start of autumn
The moonlight filtering through the branches symbolizes the loneliness of the autumn
Sharing the autumn forest with only the sound of deer, feelings of isolation
Each unique piece created by a calligraphy artist in Okinawa, Japan
50% of the process will be donated to local charities in Edmonton, Alberta where most needed at the time.
