3)Draw the pattern with a round brush

4)Draw a pattern with a cherry brossom brush.

5)Repeat to change the color

6)Add poem.

This poem is "IROHA UTA"     

This is a Japanese poem, probably written in the Heian era (AD 794–1179).

(transliteration)

---------------------------------------------------------

Iro ha nihoheto

Chirinuru wo

Wa ka yo tare so

Tsune naramu

Uwi no okuyama

Kefu koete

Asaki yume mishi

Wehi mo sesu

---------------------------------------------------------

(Translation)

---------------------------------------------------------

Even the blossoming flowers [Colors are fragrant, but they]

Will eventually scatter

Who in our world

Is unchanging?

The deep mountains of karma--

We cross them today

And we shall not have superficial dreams

Nor be deluded.

This is same poem with above.

Please enjoy ancient Japanese poem!
