Let haiku be on the UNESCO list!

 

On August 2, 1689, Matsuo Basho visited Kisakata, Akita, where he composed his haiku.

象潟や雨に西施がねぶの花

Here is the English translation by Keene Donald (鬼怒鳴門).

Kisakata―

Seishi sleeping in the rain,

Wet mimosa blossoms.

 

Now in Kisakata, adonises and red camellias are in full bloom.

More than 300 years have passed since 松尾芭蕉 ( Matsuo Basho )(1644-1694) wrote奥の細道』(Oku no Hosomichi), ‘The Narrow Road to Oku’ , a major work of haibun by the Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō .

Basho could not have dreamed of how far and wide in the world haiku is loved.

On September 23, 2014, the Akita International Haiku Network published the yearly pamphlet “Akita-The Land of Poetry”,詩の国秋田-2014.9 vol.6in the hope that haiku should be added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

Hidenori Hiruta, the Secretary General of the Akita International Haiku Network wrote the article “Let haiku be on the UNESCO list!”

Hiruta hopes that haiku will spread further worldwide if it is included in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

In the article, Hiruta refers to the latest trend that senryu and tanka have been paid more attention to among haikuists or haiku lovers in the world.

Through the website of the Akita International Haiku Network, Hiruta has found that the fixed page “What are haiku, senryu and tanka?” has had more and more visitors recently, to 4,427 ones.

In addition, the article “What are haiku, senryu and tanka?” has appeared in the English version of “Senryu (川柳) Wikipedia, which you can see on the website below.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senry%C5%AB

Hiruta sincerely hopes that senryu and tanka will become more familiar worldwide when haiku is added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

Lastly, let me show you an e-mail sent to Hiruta from Djurdja Vukelic Rozic, Principal editor of haiku magazine IRIS, Croatia, who is a haiku friend of mine.
On June 28, 2014, Djurdja wrote to Hiruta, wishing for “Haiku in the UNESCO list!”

 

Thank you, dear Hidenori-san,

I entirely forgot to send a note and did not even recognize your e-mail address.

Always hurrying, so please accept my apology.

 

Thank you for everything you’ve done for Croatian authors,

many of them being my old and even some new brothers and sisters in haiku.

Thank God for haiku for it enriched my life in a way I could not dream of long time ago,

once when we all were young…

 

I sincerely hope haiku will soon be on the UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity,

for it connects people in the most wonderful way I can think of.

 

With best regards from sunny Croatia,

sincerely

Djurdja

Here are tanka written by Kala Ramesh.

 

sugarcane sticks out

from bullock carts

I sense its sweetening

my baby, feeling you

through my stomach wall

 

サトウキビが突き出ている

雄牛の引く荷馬車から

私はそれが甘くなるのを感じます

私の赤ちゃん、あなたを感じます

胃壁を通して

 

 

the weight

of the monsoon river

tumbling down…

the blind girl’s smile

as she sees with her ears

 

重さ

季節風の川の

転がり落ちている...

目の見えない女の子の微笑み

彼女が耳で見る時

 

 

she wears

silk saris with grace

bound into a cocoon

should the silk worm be burnt

alive for that?

 

彼女は身につけている

シルクのサリーを優美に

縛られて繭と化す

シルクの虫は焼かれるべきか

生きたまま?

 

 

mutely facing

the word ‘sorry’

so much between us

all we need to do is look

into each other’s eyes

 

黙って正視している

‘ごめんなさい’という言葉を

私たちの間にはとっても多くのことが

しなくちゃならないことの全ては

ただお互いの目を見つめ合うこと

 

 

the red dot

on my forehead

binds me

to a man

who’s in his own orbit

 

赤い点

私の額の上に

私を結ぶ

男に

彼の軌道にいる

Here are tanka written by Kala Ramesh.

 

Ganga

melting from glaciers

becomes

the waterness of water…

I take the holy dip

 

ガンジス川

氷河から溶け

成る

水の中の水に

私は聖なる水にちょっと浸る

 

 

the ganga rumbling

through mountains and plains

joins the ocean…

the weight of my womb

even after menopause

 

ガンジス川がゴウゴウと音を立てて流れている

山々や平原を通って

大洋に合流する...

私の子宮の重さ

更年期の後でさえ

 

 

rain catchers

near our banyan tree

here and there

leaves of the pond lotus

roll raindrops moons

 

雨をとらえる物

私たちのベンガルボダイジュに近づく

あちこちで

池のハスの葉

雨滴の月を転がす

 

 

illusions ride

on a fast fading rainbow

somewhere there

I let go of my childhood…

I must have

 

幻が乗る

直ぐ消えていく虹の上に

どこかそこあたりに

私は子供時代を放してしまう...

持っていなければ

 

 

I look at the blue sea

and the blue sky

in wonder…

gently they turn

into night

 

青い海を見る

そして青空を

驚異の中で...

ゆるやかにそれらは向きを変える

夜の中へ

Firstly, let me post some haiku by Kala Ramesh, which are very popular among readers or audience on our website.

 

new year’s eve
all that I could have left
unsaid . . .

 

大晦日

残してきたことのありうること全て

言わないまま...

 

 

feeling as if
on a summer cloud …
hill temple

 

夏の雲の上にいるような感じ...

山寺

 

 

the waterfall rock-tumbling speckled rhythms

 

滝  岩を転がり落ちる  点々としたリズム

 

 

trying to know me
deep within me

autumn day

 

私を知ろうとしている

私の心の中の奥深く

秋の日

 

 

wading through
leaves
 
… with each step
the thoughts

 

歩いている

葉の中を通って...一歩毎に

よぎる思い

 

 

desert sands …
I enter the whole
of nothingness

 

砂漠の砂...

私は全体に入る

無の中に

Lastly, I would like to present you with Kala Ramesh’s latest tanka.

 

Tanka

 

the word kal

in Hindi means both

what’s gone

and what’s to come…

like wearing my six-metre sari

 

A Hundred Gourds 1:3 – Summer 2012 –June

 

カルという単語

ヒンドゥ-語で両方の意味である

去るもの

そして来るもの...

私の6メートルのサリーを着るようなもの

 

 

wasted breath

thinking of things

beyond control

I recollect

father’s constant whistling

 

A Hundred Gourds 1:3 – Summer 2012 – June

 

むだな呼吸

何か物事を考えている

抑えがたい

私は回想する

父の絶え間ない口笛を

 

 

after your outburst

I felt your eyes on me

anger brewing

my hand holding the teacup

begins to tremble

 

A Hundred Gourds 1:2 – Spring 2012 – March

 

あなたの爆発の後

私はあなたの視線が私の上に注ぐのを感じる

怒りが醸造する

茶碗を持っている私の手

震え始める

 

 

loneliness

increases a hundredfold

when in a crowd

there’s no one

to stand up for me

 

A Hundred Gourds 1:2 – Spring 2012 – March

 

孤独

百倍に増す

群衆の中にいるときは

誰もいない

味方してくれる人は

Dr. Akito Arima 有馬朗人is President of the Haiku International Association (HIA)国際俳句交流協会(http://www.haiku-hia.com), a nonprofit organization aimed at promoting haiku globally.

Dr. Arima also leads the haiku group Ten’I (Providence)天為(http://haikunet.info).

 

 

 

looking for

something lost ―       

wearing a winter cap

 

失ひしものを探しに冬帽子 

 

This haiku is Dr. Arima’s masterpiece, which was presented to the audience at the international symposium titled Haiku Worldwide – Present and Future.

The symposium was given for the celebration of the 20th anniversary of HIA on November 28, 2009 in Tokyo, informing the audience of the states of haiku in foreign countries.

The symposium became the really special forum as the audience reconsidered what haiku means to them and found a new significance of international haiku

And at last the audience realized the dawn of the new twenty-first century haiku.

In the greeting of HIA homepage, President Akito Arima says as follows:

“The Haiku International Association was established in December 1989 in order to respond to haiku’s worldwide popularity and to promote friendship and exchanges with haiku lovers overseas. Since then, our association has been continuing its activities, concentrating on the introduction of haiku culture, exchanges with international societies and the publication of a magazine.

In today’s world, political, economic and cultural walls are coming down everywhere. The world’s people have joined hands in this. Now they must mutually remove certain walls in their hearts. I am convinced that the mutual understanding derived from the love that different peoples have for haiku will prove very helpful towards the attainment of this goal.

On July 01, 2002, the Haiku International Association has opened its home page. It is my heartfelt wish that the internet will lead to increased exchanges and friendship between haiku lovers overseas and that it will provide a gateway to haiku for those of the general public with an interest in haiku.”

 

The following is the Japanese translations of Dr. Arima’s greeting.

「このような俳句の国際化に対応するために、海外の俳句愛好家との交流・親睦を目的として、1989年12月に「国際俳句交流協会」が設立されました。以来、協会は俳句文化の紹介・国際組織との連携・機関誌の発行を中心に、活発な活動を続けております。政治的にも、経済的にも、そして文化的にも、今や世界の壁は取り払われようとしています。すべての国の人々がともに手を携えて前進するには、お互いの心の中にある壁も取り去らなければなりません。多くの民族に愛される俳句を通じての相互理解が、そのために大いに役立つであろうことを、私は確信いたしております。
 国際俳句交流協会では、2002年7月1日にホームページを開設し、インターネットを利用して、海外の俳句愛好家との交流や会員同士の親睦がますます盛んになることはもちろん、俳句に興味をお持ちになられている一般の方々からのアクセスを、心から願ってやみません。」

The other day Ms. Hana Fujimoto (藤本はな, a leading staff at HIA, sent me the following mail, telling me about the news of haiku festival and haiku conference:

 蛭田 秀法様

日頃は当協会に温かなご支援を頂き誠に有難うございます。
本年もどうぞよろしくお願い申し上げます。

さきほど、カリフォルニア州のukiahaiku の資料を転送させていただきました。ご興味があればどうぞよろしくお願い致します。今年は夏に、ワシントン州でHaiku North Americaの会議があり、また、ヨーロッパでは、若い俳人大高翔さんの俳句塾を予定しています。

世界中で俳句を通じた交流が益々盛んになることを念じております。今後ともよろしくご教示下さいますようお願いを申しあげます。

HNA says in the homepage as follows:

 

The conference theme will be “Fifty Years of Haiku,” celebrating the past, present, and future of haiku in North America. The deadline for proposals has been extended to February 28, 2011 (http://www.haikunorthamerica.com/pages/next.html), but sooner is better. Proposals do not have to fit the theme. If you’ve already submitted a proposal, please confirm with Michael Dylan Welch at WelchM@aol.com that you can come to Seattle on the new dates. Speakers already include Cor van den Heuvel, Richard Gilbert, David Lanoue, Carlos Colón, Fay Aoyagi, Jim Kacian, Emiko Miyashita, George Swede, and many others.
