Worth a Thousand Words: Apricot Blossoms


Though it's winter  flowers have been fluttering  from the sky 
 the other side of the cloud  Wouldn't it spring?    
   Kiyohara no Fukayabu (dates unknown about Heian period 9-10th century)



This is just a bit from Calligraphy in the Landscape which you definitely do not want to miss. I was hard pressed to decide which elements would communicate some of the beauty and elegance I saw there in praise of apricot blossoms.
