Falling & Rising

Yosa Buson one of “the big five” (Basho, Issa, Buson, Chiyo-Ni and Shiki) – was born in Kema Settsu, where several waterfalls can be seen.

Waterfalls are beautiful – also poetic, dramatic and a fresh nature phenomena. But – there always is a but – I wouldn’t live close to one. Just think – never a quiet moment!  No I prefer visiting waterfalls and enjoy them – get inspired. Now thinking about the beautiful Brudslöjan – The Bridal Veil – between Sweden and Norway. I visited it once skiing – it was all frozen at that time.

Just came home after an evening with Scottish contemporary dancers. Some days ago I enjoyed dancers from Netherlands. So I am in a good mood. Swaying on my cloud-look-alike surfing board on every named waterfall this minute on Internet. So beware – I will visit yours!

like surfing pirates – with swords
glistering falling

The first Scottish performance today was extraordinary! Also funny. The audience – and of course I – was so amused. First part they performed as if they were the instruments in an orchestra playing classic music. Adorable! And the funny part about birds seducing each other in a human-look-alike flamboyant way. I took that scen with me home smiling all the way.

I didn’t meet “my” favorite choreographer this night. Imagine he is too busy with the premier to soon take place which he told me about last time. He looked really tired then. I’m looking forward that performance in a few days. But – there always is a but – before that I have other events to attend. My schedule is fully booked.

I don’t know why I choose this opposite-kind-of-water-fall …. rising water …

I only use my own photos here and … so sorry ….  I don’t find any falling water only rising. Here is a really strong one:

  1. You ate getting more and more comfortable exhibiting quality with ease…!

    This was again an enjoyable read…despite being about those bloody Scots in parts!

    You bring sensuality alive…..and desires..which I think may explain the rising waters…..!

    Captivating.

    1. 😀 still smiling after evening. Thanks for very very kind words Hamish!
      And … who hasn’t desires!? … and also spiced with humor …

  2. Awesome post Birgitta … it looks like you have found your way in haiku and haibun, this post feels comfortable and that humor and a sense of sensuality is extraordinary …
