This Instagram project Home Zen Garden is inspired by traditional Japanese rock gardens and original haiku poetry.
Many of haiku poems might seem to be simple but they depict profound emotions or beautiful moments. Thinking about a visual representation of the haiku stories opens a great potential to reinforce one's imagination, concentration and patience.
