These small cards bearing calligraphy and/or artwork are used to evoke a mood or feeling in keeping with the theme of a tea gathering. Mounted on small hanging scrolls (tanzaku kake), they are displayed in the guests gathering room or near the initial entryway. This poem card depicts a waterfall landscape with calligraphy whose characters read "hakuunchu" or "hakuun no naka", which may be translated "In the midst of white clouds".
