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

Every Monday is zen Monday. Always a weekly dose of Japanese ink painting coupled with one Japanese word, sometimes a poem.

Want to see more Japanese birds? I’m currently inking one hundred Japanese bird species. Follow that project on my instagram account @mtenente.
