Haiga 422


Haiku by myself. Another poster haiga. A poster usually carries words that stand out. In this poster, I lightened the words below to put more emphasis on the haiku.

When I was a college student, I spent a month ,visiting all over USA on Greyhound Bus. At Grand Canyon, I took a walk on a descending narrow path. On the way, I sat on a rock and started playing Ryuteki, a bamboo flute used for Gagaku, court music of Japan. Total silence and then my flute. It was such a soothing experience. Even now, when I see images of Grand Canyon, the memory comes back to me, hence the haiku.

Good idea to lighten the text. I can almost hear the enchanting music.

I still remember the piece I played. It was Etenraku, the most popular Gagaku music.
