Poem+image 01


The poem is by Octavio Paz of Mexico. He is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 1990.
I picked this particular poem, because each one is short and has the feel of haiku. All together, the poem could be appreciated as a Renku (chained haiku). Haiku is the source of my inspiration in making artworks most of the time, but I do get inspired by poems like this time to time.

A great poem (haiku) indeed, and true.

My good friend and I
in a rainy spring day
even/yet yawn at one time

Face to face
a raindrop on his cheek
and a tear on her

Yes, two "a" in the word verification (and another combination as well)
Cannot stop thinking about coincidence(s) ...

Ah, it has just changed to another interesting one ... :)

I am looking for poems like this. It is rather difficult for me to find poems formed like a Renku. If anybody can refer them to me, I am grateful.

For Alenka-san's haiku, here is a renku to follow.
On dark wet earth
stars of white Sakura petals

Face to face,
I, after all these years, see me
in you.
