Hangeul, Korean Calligraphic Art of Jung Do-jun

His poems are profound and curious…
written in Korean script (not Chinese)

“Like a Lotus Flower” (2006)

Like a lion unfazed by a
sudden noise,
like wind uncaught in
a net,
like a lotus flower
unsoiled by mud:
march forward alone
like the horn
of a rhino.
(included in, A Way with Words: The Calligraphic Art of Jung, Do-jun)

obvious question,
“are there rhinos in korea?
and if so, in what regions?”

    love the poem!

    fyi…have found this very interesting author: search “Covell Jon Etta Hastings Carter 1910” in Link+. reading 2 of her books:
    –Korea’s Cultural Roots
    –Korean Impact on Japanese Culture: Japan’s Hidden History

    looking forward to more “korean quotient” on your blog!!

    p.s. if there are rhinos in korea, maybe there are hippos, too?? One can dream!
