Thank you for reading another zen Monday. ありがとうございました。

Every Monday is zen Monday, a weekly dose of zen in Japanese ink painting format, coupled with one Japanese word.

Zen Mondays are back from their summer hiatus. Thank you for your patience and celebrating the return with another haiku – just below the images.
