Let haiku be on the UNESCO list!

 

Here is a letter of support of the campaign from Ms. Julia Guzmán and Mr.  Jorge Giallorenzi in Córdoba, Argentina.

The former half is written in Spanish, and the latter half in English.

We sincerely wish to appreciate and share it with each other.

Estimado señor Hiruta,

 

                       Desde Comodoro Rivadavia (Patagonia Argentina ) y Córdoba (ciudad mediterránea argentina) nos unimos a la campaña “el HAIKU en la lista de la UNESCO”.

 

                       Nosotros , Jorge A. Giallorenzi y  M. Julia Guzmán, haijines, creemos en el haiku como una manera de tener y vivir en paz.

 

                        Creemos que quienes tenemos al haiku como una forma de vida, vivimos en íntimo contacto con la naturaleza reconociéndola como parte de nosotros y nosotros como parte de ella.

Quien vive la vida bajo estos principios está en paz y, sobre todo, quiere la paz.

 

                          Al escribir haiku aprendemos a ser menos egoístas, a contemplar y ser parte de la

naturaleza, a valorar lo sagrado de lo cotidiano y a vivir en el aquí y el ahora, porque todo lugar es

aquí y todo momento es ahora. 

 

Agua oscura…                                                                  Una perra abre sus patas.    

La esbeltez de una garza                                               El aroma de las prímulas

reflejándose.                                                                   cambia.

Dear  Sir,

 

                  From Comodoro Rivadavia –Argentinian Patagonia- and Córdoba – a mediterranean Argentinian city, we, Jorge A. Giallorenzi  and M. Julia Guzmán, haijins, join to the campaign that haiku has to be in the UNESCO list.

 

                  We believe that the people who choose haiku as a life style live in an intimate contact with nature and recognize it as part of us as well as we are part of it. Those who live life following these principles feel at peace and, above all, want peace for all human beings.

 

                   When writing haiku we learn to be less selfish, to contemplate and be part of nature, to value the sacred things in daily life, we learn to live here and now since every place is here and every moment is now. These are some of the varied reasons we believe that HAIKU has to be declared World Heritage.

 

Dark water…                                                                       A  she dog opens its legs

The slenderness of a heron                                             The smell of pasque flowers

being reflected .                                                                 change.

 

                  Julia Guzmán                                                                Jorge Giallorenzi
