From the series a Chiyo-ni. 7 disegni per 28 haiku [to Chiyo-ni. 7 drawings for 28 haikus], fifth drawing with colour pencils and ink on washi paper, laying on a cardboard with my Italian translation of 4 haikus (42x30cm). An introduction to Chiyo-ni and my project in this post, previous life cycles in drawing I (age 0-7), II (age 8-14), III (age 15-21), IV (age 22-28). This drawing is for age 29-35 of my life, a pretty laborious time, I’d say: I moved back to Turin and worked hard, as a professional and on myself, as well. As a metter of fact, that in the picture is the first notebook I used for taking notes about my buddhist practice.
In the next slides, the related Chiyo-ni’s haikus in kanji and romaji, with my Italian metrical translation (English non-metrical translations in the captions).
