That's the long-awaited summer, and to the rest, interesting trips, long walks - hand. The soul of this singing even want to talk about poetry ... Why really did not devote a few lines of vacation? :)
Global Lab announces haiku contest on the theme of summer and summer vacations. You can write about everything: their emotions, the places where you are going, about the expectations from the rest, and the like, and win the monthly subscription rate of "Solo"!
The rules are simple:
1. Carefully read the study protocol in the project "Haiku International" to a good understanding of the structure of the haiku, and not to be mistaken with the format of their own work.
2. Make your own haiku glorifying summer and summer vacation.
The contest will run from 1 to 15 June. Do not forget to vote for your favorite hockey - because the three parties, who wrote the best products, we will give a monthly subscription for the tariff "Individual".
There will soon be a detailed article about the Japanese aesthetic categories, including wabi sabi and. So I will not spread the idea of the tree, and briefly to say: haiku as a genre in general avoid too bright colors and too violent feelings. It is distinguished by attention to small. Haiku - art items, the ability to focus on it and reveal the image. Haiku does not spoil the reader an abundance of artistic media, usually on one verse is exactly one trails. Well, for example:
Atsuko hee about umi no iretari mogamigava
Wants sun heat
In the blue sea to drown
We see exactly one trail: River likening man capable of experiencing feelings. And nothing more - and more and is not necessary.
Often they do go without imagery, limited sketches, touch reality, which the reader will complement the imagery itself:
I midzikae Thonar e Jacobo Kani but asi
Included Single I neighbor
Further. The Japanese are not scattered epithets. They have traditional epithets kake-kotoba (about them separately), and in addition, they are stingy epithets. Why is that, because the epithet - it is the author's evaluation, and the author of haiku not push themselves, it is not accepted. Instead of estimating better express emotion. Bass could not write "Matsushima Islands - gorgeous view!" It's too forehead. He wrote:
Ah, Matsushima, a-ah!
And this is probably the maximum expression that haijin can afford. In general, you should avoid evaluative adjectives in every way. Either we give a description, and the reader can really understand how to relate to that described, or we talk about their emotions, but then do not say naprmuyu that caused the emotion. Basho's not said that Matsushima islands are beautiful. Although they are really beautiful:
Or description, or an emotion, but never both simultaneously.
Holidays and related customs, I outlined in a separate group of seasonal words precisely because of non-obviousness. If we are talking about haiku hatch kidneys, planting or harvesting rice, referred to chicks, rabbits or swallow - more or less clear about what time of the year in question, but how do you know what season to indicate, for example, the word "bamboo"? He stands and evergreen all year round. Or "hinadan" - shelf for dolls?
Lord, here there is such a thing here: Google-transleyt, bolted to the site strives to translate gibberish language haiku. In this connection, I stop to post the original Japanese and leave only Russian transcription. Sorry.
Issa is very warm attitude to different beings. For his hand was not "unworthy" of a subject, he wrote about the nightingales and the frogs and the cicadas woodlice, and, of course, about cats and dogs.
