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.
