Haiku by Marco Campioli
HAIKU Nr. 1
astonishing the full moon –
mask of golden straw
(sent to: email@example.com; Basho Festival Haiku Contest, 2016).
Honourable Mention awarded to Marco Campioli for this original haiku sent to the Basho Festival Haiku Contest, 2016.
Haiku selected and translated in Japanese by Koko Kato.
Certificate of merit signed by Okamoto Sakae (Iga City, Mie Prefecture, Japan; Mayor) and by Nishida Makoto (President of the Honourable Basho Tribute Foundation).
The author (Marco CAMPIOLI): a many-coloured scarecrow (many-coloured like Harlequin, an Italian mask of the XVI Century) is constructed to keep birds away from the crops but also (or principally!) to astonish the full moon – the aspect of the scarecrow strikes (and surprises!) because it reminds a mask of “ golden ” straw.
