The five haiku masters in Japan …. Bashō, Issa (Cup-of-tea), Buson, Chiyo-Ni and Shiki – “the Big Five.”
It really gripped my – todays post at Carpe Diem. I almost felt I sailed up a poetry level. Felt very nice …
I read your poetry – in the water
you still are
… to be there. But however I am realistic too. I’m not there yet. But I promise – cross my heart … I’m on my way. Cause I so badly want to … I always want to be a better me. Not the best because I have passed that several times. I just want to get better and better …
haiku – in the mountain pediment
painted by Issa
Today I have been so inspired by poetry written by Hamish, Kristjaan and other masters. I think the way of … “hear your voice in the water stream” …. “birds chirping in the sound of stones” …. and I bring with me … “the artist not to be seen in the poetry”. That last one will be difficult … I’m sure. I am also – every day – inspired by haiku by Lize Bard – and responding to them.
Hopefully – some day – I will become a better me … but as I use to say nowadays – I have time.
time for haiku – writings
