Let haiku be on the UNESCO list!

 

Here is a letter of support for the campaign from Mr. Naselje Garča in Bosnia and Herzegovina, translated into English by Ms. Đurđa Vukelić-Rožić.

 

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

 With very few words one may paint an image – and there you have Haiku!

When, where and what had happened – in three verses all the answers are there.

 

only haiku is

in this century

understood by all

 

I write and I have been writing poems, stories, novels – books for the children.

Yet, writing haiku – I’ve become aware I can say and paint much more.

 

autumn image

of warriors and ruins –

tired is this world

 

Born in the culture of Japanese people, Haiku has enriched the culture of the whole world!

And therefore, HAIKU IS OUR COMMON WEALTH – a testimony of human mutual respect and preservation of true values of humanity.

 

dark rain clouds

yet we say to each other-

good morning

 

With my deepest respect,

 

Božidar Škobić – Čika Boško,

poet and writer…

**********************

 

Poštovane dame i gospodo,

 

Sa malo riječi naslikaš divnu sliku – Imaš Haiku!

Kada, gdje i šta se zbilo – u tri stiha su dati svi odgovori.

 

samo haiku

i u ovom vijeku

svi razumiju

 

Pišem i pisao sam pjesme, priče i romane – knjige za djecu . . .

A pišući haiku – shvatio sam da mogu: da kažem i naslikam – mnogo više.

 

jesenja slika

ratnika i zgarišta

umoran svijet

 

Rođen u Kulturi japanskog naroda – Haiku je obogatio kulturu cijeloga svijeta! I zato jeste naše – zajedničko bogatstvo – svjedočanstvo ljudskog međupoštovanja i očuvanja pravih vrijednosti!

 

Kišni oblaci

a ipak govorimo –

Dobro jutro

 

Sa dužnim poštovanjem,

 

Božidar Škobić – Čika Boško,

pjesnik i pisac …
