hirayama, ikuo, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

Ikuo Hirayama, "the most famous artist in all Japan" (so say our friends), died a few days ago. This is the kanji from the front of his house ("Hira" above "Yama"), just down the road from ours, and right next to the radiant gingko. I expect someone good at words would find a haiku in there somewhere...

rain falls on stucco
artist Hira Yama's mark is left
for us to wash away

Ginko turns yellow
Hirayama ashes sown
Spring renews the green

Well I'm not "good at words" but I'll have a go.

Hira on Yama
Japan's "most famous artist"
Gingko leaves too, fall.

Hirayama's house:
Autumn colours the gingko
For others to paint
