Haiku and Moments










haiku moments -
in the temple garden
stones asleep

AHA, the HAIKU MOMENT
Haiku no shunkan ? 俳句の瞬間 ??




ZEN and HAIKU

I tried hard to find a Japanese translation for the “Zen Moment”,
but this word is not common in Japanese haiku teaching, as far as I know.

I have written more on the subject here:

句三昧 お寺の庭に 眠る石
ku zan mai otera no niha ni nemuru ishi

[zan mai] means [thinking it with all body and soul]

I have posted a similar haiku of Issa to my blog.

Cheers,
sakuo.

Oh Gabi,
this photo-haiku is wonderful...so peaceful...
and I like the way you've framed
it all together -- very nice work!
Love your latest photos...
Kusu no Ki is particularly fascinating.

Lovely page, Gabi san!

From reading the haiku to seeing the picture, there was a first aha! moment -- not the type of sleeping stone I had expected. Then, a moment to savour the picture together with the haiku -- and then... a second aha! moment -- the stones are awake!!

Very nice, Gabi.
The stones are asleep, but I'm glad you are awake and aware.
