草はなはなくも Even though there is no flower
かれず a weed does not wither
生きぬき It survives
いずれ Before long
かもくな a quiet
花はさく flower will bloom
KU SA WA NA WA NA KU MO
KA RE ZU
I KI NU KI
I ZU RE
KA MO KU NA
HA NA WA SA KU
A weed does not wither. It survives even though it has not yet flowered. We may not see it, but it a flower will bloom before long.
Even a nameless weed takes root in the soil and survives strongly. When you live like a weed, the time for you to bloom will come before too long. Your flower will bloom silently and beautifully. This palindrome embraces a strong message and life lesson.
