Asahi Haikuist network”, by di David McMurray

Due miei haiku
appaiono nell’ultima rubrica di “Asahi Haikuist network”, a cura di David McMurray. “Pilmigrinage” è stato commentato dall’editore. “Tigre bianca” (la seconda poesia) è collegata a molti elementi spirituali.

temple ruins
a pilgrim’s whispered prayer
sculpted in the rock

rovine del tempio
la preghiera sussurrata di un pellegrino
scolpita nella roccia

(In Milan, Italy, Eufemia Griffo alluded to the belief that following his crucifixion Jesus Christ was buried in a rock cave, named the garden tomb by Protestant worshippers. L’haikuista ha osservato il Venerdì Santo. A Milano, in Italia, Eufemia Griffo ha alluso alla credenza che dopo la sua crocifissione, Gesù Cristo fosse stato sepolto in una grotta rocciosa. Commento di D. McMurray)

white tiger
a thousand prayers
become one

tigre bianca
mille preghiere
diventano una

My poem ” absinthe glass”, in the second place in Asahi Haikuist Network edited by David McMurray

Today my poem ” absinthe glass” is in the second place in Asahi Haikuist Network edited by David McMurray.

absinthe glass
the souls of poets lost
in a green river

About absinthe…

The legacy of absinthe as a mysterious, addictive, and mind-altering drink continues to this day. Absinthe has played a notable role in the fine art movements of Impressionism, Post-impressionism, Surrealism, Modernism, Cubism and in the corresponding literary movements. The legendary drink has more recently appeared in movies, video, television, music, and contemporary literature. The modern absinthe revival has had a notable effect on its portrayal. It is often shown as an unnaturally glowing green liquid.

Oscar Wilde wrote:

“What difference is there between a glass of absinthe and a sunset?”. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world.”

There is a beautiful scene of Francis Ford Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” movie in which the vampire tells to Mina: “Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the self. The green fairy who lives in the absinthe wants your soul. But you are safe with me. “
