Corner view: Poem


Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry typically characterised by three qualities:
  • The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colors the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.
  • Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae), in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 on respectively.
  • A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such words.
This year I decided to take my dream of writting a bit more seriously. So as I find no time to write a long novel, I decided to start just to write. I find writting haikus a very interesant and pleasant exercise. I can write in quite short time, some lines, just a pair of poems or more. A morning feeling, a night dream, a snowy morning. All seams to be easier, just to write something everyday. 

I have a notebook that I bring with me everywhere, and when I find a moment and an inspiring ray of light passes, I write.

I don´t know how far will I write or how good are my poems, but at least, I am starting to write.

Have you ever tried to write this kind of short poems?

El haiku , en español frecuentemente jaiku (siguiendo la transcripción fonética directa), es un tipo de poesía japonesa. Consiste en un poema breve, formado por tres versos de siete y cinco silabas respectivamente. Comúnmente se sustituyen las moras por sílabas cuando se traducen o componen en otras lenguas. La poética del haiku generalmente se basa en el asombro y el arrobo que produce en el poeta la contemplación de la naturaleza.

Este año me he tomado mi sueño de escribir algo más en serio. Había tratado de escribir antes, pero después de rellenar hojas y hojas, los textos se quedaban a medias, las historias empezaban y no terminaban nunca...no encontraba tiempo suficiente para escribir, con mayúsculas y en serio.

Escribir haikus ha resultado interesante e inspirador. Son poesías cortas que puedo escribir en cualquier momento, varias, o simplemente una...dependiendo del tiempo y la inspiración. Las mañanas, la luz, la nieve, los sueños...resulta sencillo escribir algo tan sencillo y tan corto. Y aunque no lo hago todos los días, empiezo a recopilar unas cuantas.

Llevo siempre conmigo una libreta y en cualquier sitio que las musas me visiten puedo arrancar unas líneas al silencio. No sé si son buenas o no, no sé cuánto tiempo aguantará este proyecto...de momento, estoy empezando a escribir.

Habéis probado alguna vez a escribir Haikus?

Haiku jatorrian japonierazko olerki mota bat da, 5-7-5 silabako lerroetan antolatutako 17 silabek osatua. Renga izeneko olerkiak dira haiku-en oinarrian. Deskribapen objektiboa egiten dute haiku idazleek beren lanetan, baina irakurlearengan zirrarak eragitea izaten da deskribapen horren azken helburua.

Aurten idaztearen ametsari aukera bat ematea otu zait. Betidanik idatzi izan dut. Etxean hasitako historio asko gordetzen dituzten horriak daude, baina inoiz ez dira hazten edo amaitzen. Denbora faltak eta agian ametsa egi bihurtu daitekeenaren konfidantza faltak amaitu gabe lagatzera bultzatzen ninduten.

Haikuak idazten hasi naiz. Erreza eta inspirazioz beteak topatzen ditut. Edozein momentutan nirekin eramaten dudan libretan idatzi daitezkeenak. Egunsenti gozoa, amets egindakoa, usai bat...

Ez dakit onak diren hala ez, baina gutxienez idazten hasi naiz.

Probatu ahal duzute noizbai halakoak idaztea?

  3. Hi Ibabe, Too amazing to speak of connections, do you realize on our joint theme, we both posted Hokusai views of Mt. Fuji!! I would say that is amazing!!

    I am so happy to hear of your writing Haiku. How beautiful to see you in that chair!
    Beautiful post. I feel more in Japan here at your post then here in my room (in Japan) kind of and at the same time I feel we are both in the same state (of mind!):))

    My picture, by the way, was made by literally CUTTING a postcard that I got from the Hokusai exhibition of his Mt. Fuji, and then within that I put the lines and colors of the rainbow.
    It really excites me that we were so in sync on our joint theme without knowing it at all.
    You made my day!!♡

  8. I love haiku... so few words can trigger so many mental images and feelings. And the same haiku can feel different when read on different days.
    I would love to read your haikus!

  12. I've never tried to write Haiku - but I used to write a lot of poems when I was younger. All of them were pretty awful I think but I loved the process of writing them nevertheless :-) I hope you share some of your haiku with us one day - Karyn - Eliza's Dream

  13. I have written also haikus and I think it´s very good exercise, because it´s not easy at all. Opposite - it´s very challenging to put big idea into just few words.
