The 130th WHA Haiga Contest (05/2015)

restless reeds
a swan at the shore shuns
my shadow

roseaux agités
le cygne sur la rive évite
mon ombre

niespokojne trzciny
łabędź na brzegu omija
mój cień

nyugtalan nád
hattyú a parton elkerüli

at the pen
swims across my shadow
six cygnets


light breeze …
growing accustomed
to being ignored


środa, 27 maja 2015


boundless fog
from the other shore returns
only the carrier

brouillard infini
il revient seul de l'autre rivage
le passeur

bezgraniczna mgła
z drugiego brzegu wraca
tylko przewoźnik

végtelen köd
a túlpartról egyedül tér vissza
a révész

亡き兄の 霞の果てに 消えしまま
(Japanese translation Ms Seki Mokka)

The 2nd International Haiku Conference was held on May 15-17, 2015 
in the Museum of Japanese Art and Technology Manngha, in Kraków.
The participants of the Conference came to Kraków from Poland 
and different countries, e.g. Japan, Germany, Bulgaria, USA, Sweden, The Nederlands, Lithuania, UK and more.
The Conference was convened in conjunction with the fourth edition of The Miłosz Festival and was dedicated to Miłosz and his work with haiku as well as to haiku generally in Poland and Europe. 
There were numerous interesting presentations and round-table discussions about traditional and modern haiku, haibun and haiga during the Conference.
Czesław Miłosz (1911-2004) is a Polish national treasure. He was poet, writer, and translator and awarded the 1980 Nobel Prize in Literature. He also wrote haiku and translated from English into Polish haiku of Basho, Buson, Issa.
