Matsu oi kumo shizuka (Aged pine tree with calm clouds)

Aged pine tree is respected in Zen world, because it looks beautiful with white clouds. Clouds are usually thought as the simbol of our desires which disturb our original pure mind.(Buddha nature), but only aged pine tree can accept them as a kind of atractive scenery. I’m also aiming at this mature state of my mind.
