A spiritual journey through the Greve in Chianti community is aimed at gaining greater knowledge of the development of religious art in a land strongly marked with a human presence and attention to the different forms of devotion that intimately penetrate all the social strata; not only priceless works of architecture, sculpture and art that are found in the most important worship buildings, but also numerous evidences of a relatively minor art that is traceable everwhere, from the isolated chapel in the forest, to the remote crosses on the top of the knolls and hills, to the votive tabernacles scattered along the road network.

Following a route on a quest to discover these works is of extreme interest and the variety of settlements would entail a longer account; we confine ourselves to suggesting two main routes, one across the valley of Greve, and the other along the ridge that separate it from the Valdarno (on the east) and from the valley of Pesa (val di Pesa) (on the west).

Yesterday was the Autumn Haiku Marathon at NHK.
More than 5000 haiku offered within five hours. About 100 discussed during this time. Inahata Teiko and Kaneko Tohta at their best again !

Here is one lesson I learned, more to follow.


State the setting with a suitable kigo and show the actors only. No verb is used in this case.

For example:

withered fields -
father, son and
an old dog

LAST haiku

  
  



Aim at the sun and you may not reach it;
but your arrow will fly far higher
than if you had aimed at an object
on a level with yourself.


-- F. Hawes



CLICK for original LINK !


That is an interesting thought.

My Kyudo (Archery) Teacher would say:

Aim behind the target !
Shoot each arrow as if it was your last one !
Be here and now !



and the Kendo Teacher:

Batteling with five opponents,
use your force as if they were seven.




Can we apply this to Haiku? Here is my haiku sensei:


Write each haiku as if it was your last one !
There is no tomorrow to reach,
there is only NOW to write.

three for free

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


explaining kigo -
one for a dollar
three for free



This little senryu came to mind when checking about
the mud dumplings in a haiku by Issa.


.............................................................

Here is the story


Mountain Ban Pin Shan in Taiwan

Once upon a time, when Ban Pin Shan was still undivided, a small village existed at the foot of the mountain. One day, an old man who was selling dumplings came to the village. He had white hair and a white beard and his clothing was very old and worn. He carried a heavy load of hot dumplings which looked and smelled deliciously good to eat. However, everyone in the village thought the old man was stupid because he yelled,

Hot and delicious dumplings!
One for ten cents,
two for twenty cents
and three for free!



Read it all in my Story Library !

I have been explaining kigo for free, but now I have to pay to FlickR to get the photos back to show them to you !

autumn butterflies

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::



autumn butterflies -
a final dance from
light to shadow






光から陰へのダンス 秋の蝶



:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::




It was amazing to see the two little yellow ones suddenly disappear, when a cloud covered the late autumn sun and the valley fell into deep darkness ... all of a sudden.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::



................. DUTCH translation:


herfstvlinders -
een finale dans van
licht naar schaduw


Geert Verbeke

fluturi in octombrie-
dansul final dintre

Vasile Moldovan


................. French Translation:

des papillons d'automne---
dans une dernière danse
la lumière devient ombre


Keith A. Simmonds



Thanks to all my friends from WonderHaikuWorlds for the translations !


...........................................


Some friends thought the use of FINAL was too much of a personification here, leading to the death of the butterflies ...

I used it to mean the final moment for myself,
when I could not see them any more, after watching them for about two minutes, they simply vanished in mid-air when the late sunshine stopped to fall on them and they were ... gone, invisible, it was final for me ...


If you extend the meaning of FINAL as seen of the life of the butterfly, this is a different way of interpretation
(I might have intended or not ;) ).


This is a scene I can only observe in late autumn sunshine and enjoy every year to the fullest !

Withered branches

Lesson about the CUT, cause and effect


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::




枯れ枝や 朝日に光る白い苔
kareeda ya asahi ni hikaru shiroi koke



withered branches -
their white moss sparkles
in the morning sun




朝の日や枯れ枝に光る白い苔
asa no hi ya kareeda ni hikaru shiroi koke

morning sunshine -
white moss sparkles
on withered branches





NO CUTTING WORD ... NO Japanese Equivalent
just for the sake of this exercise, using an inversion of line 2 and 3 which I do not favour in my haiku.


morning sunshine
on withered branches
the white moss sparkles


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::




We had long planned to cut this old three, whith its few bare branches sticking into the sky. But this morning, I decided to let him stand there as long as he was given time by nature ...



........................... a bit of Haiku theory

According to Hasegawa Kai sensei, the working of the cut is to bring out the relation between cause and effect. Cause is the happening NOW. Effect (something lingering in my mind plus CUT ) pops up.
BUT
in a good haiku, say what is still remaining in your heart first (with a CUTTING word). Meaning, the result, the effect is stated first, then the cause, the reason for what triggered this now.


I saw the white sparkle first, then the sunshine came into mind.

The third example has no Japanese equivalent.
The English reader might read a pause after line one or two, or maybe pivot ... theories are many.


Still struggeling with the CUT.
The lesson is going on till April of 2009, so there will be more theory !

Kireji, the CUT in haiku !

Philosophy

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


The self is not something that one finds.
It is something that one creates.


-- Thomas Szasz (1920-)
American Psychiatrist


............................

for haiku, it is often the other way round for me:

A haiku is not something that one creates.
It is something that one finds.


How about your haiku creation process ?

............................


Dear Gabi San,
Thanks you much for your continuous help to create.

With due honour to the American psychiatrist I may say that according Indian philosophy, our belief, the divine like the tao is already present in us and outside us. We have to contact it to find ourselves. A way of thinking it may be, as the modernist may say. but it is like is-ness, am-ness.

Now the next about Haiku as you invite, I have just penned these three lines-

Everything is there;
you have to put them in the
right place to create.

Warmly-

More thoughts on philosophical haiku as opposed to pure shasei haiku

After doing a little cursory research, it seems that the term 'philosophical', when applied to haiku, is a catch-all term for haiku which: have for subject matter an idea or concept; draw a moral; present or hint at a religious belief system; incorporate metaphysical elements; etc.
