Mode d'Emploi

Já por várias vezes aqui referi a qualidade da revista de poesia Haiku "The Heron's Nest". Acaba de ser publicado um novo número (que pode ser pedido em

Gostava de aqui publicitar umas poucas mas certeiras orientações para quem quer escrever poesia haiku da "The Heron's Nest"

Present moment magnified (immediacy of emotion)
Interpenetrating the source of inspiration (no space between observer and observed)
Simple, uncomplicated images
Common language
Finding the extraordinary in "ordinary" things
Implication through objective presentation, not explanation: appeal to intuition, not intellect
Human presence is fine if presented as an archetypical, harmonious part of nature (human nature should blend in with the rest of nature rather than dominate the forefront)
Humor is fine, if in keeping with "karumi" (lightness) - nothing overly clever, cynical, comic, or raucous
Musical sensitivity to language (effective use of rhythm and lyricism)
Feeling of a particular place within the cycle of seasons
