kaze fukanu hi wa
sabushi kari keri

Living deep in the mountains
I've grown fond of the
Sound of the murmuring pine;
On a day the wind does not blow
How lonely it is!
Rengetsu age 77

Rengetsu was a nun, potter, poet, calligrapher, and painter. The inscription is her most famous poem. The outstanding feature of this painting is that the wind is shown blowing the pine and the blind hanging before the hut. Rengetsu's ability to integrate the calligraphy with a painting is marvelous. As we see here, the two elements become a seamless unity.
