Zen phrase for August

“Willows are green; flowers are red”.


I have always thought this phrase depicts the springtime sceneries.


However, I found out it was categorized under Zen words for the month of August in a site.


I tried a new approach for this work that one of my fellow students at the calligraphy school I go to taught me.


Explanation of this method would be:

first; soak the brush in water plentifully,

second; put a little ink at the end of the brush,

then; try to write with this brush very swiftly.


Although I am sure it is an interesting way of using brushes in calligraphy, I think I have to practice a lot more to be able to create fine works.
