〜Most pleasant aroma  梅雨の中でも〜

This is a modern haiku about the pleasant aroma of the (sumi) ink drifting in the air even in the rainy season.  I am aware that these days more and more people use something synthesized ink-like liquid.  I remember my teacher called it “dead ink” and told his students never to use this “dead ink” because “living calligraphy” would never be produced with “dead ink”.

I give the desk wearing sumi (inkstick) aroma
