The difficulty is that many strokes get abbreviated into very artful swoops and swirls. And there's not necessarily a one-to-one correspondence that results.
Funny enough, "grass script" is the term in Chinese as well. Actually it's really not much of a coincidence.
Anyway, tst, don't worry about the picture; it's as clear as can be. As others have said, it's the handwriting/calligraphy that is difficult to read, just as unfamiliar cursive can seem like nothing but loops and squiggles.
