The true beginnings / Of poetry—an Oku / Rice-planting song
when I started writing haikus few years back ,i read a series of them ,especially of the Master (Basho) . the intriguing part was that it were related to Zen philosophy . the selflessness ,emotionless , sentiment- less , nature based haikus of the Master always follow me whenever I write them like a ghost .
based on this concept , and not forgetting kigo and kireji , i flow down along with the ghost…..
rice planting women
their songs are lost in the wind
submerged paddy fields .
