Hamburger Haiku-Team:

Eindeutiger Bezug zu einer Jahreszeit durch Verwendung eines Jahreszeitenwortes (kigo)


Um dieses Kriterium gab und gibt es immer wieder Dispute, nicht nur bei uns, sondern auch in Japan. Jedoch sollte man das Setzen des Jahreszeitenthemas als Chance und als Hilfe begreifen, nicht als Einschränkung. Die lyrische Kürzestform hat sich nur entwickeln können, weil die Bedingungen für Imagination und Assoziationen mit einem Wort, dem Thema, gesetzt waren. Erst das kigo, das kidai schafft den Freiraum für den Dichter, in den restlichen ca. 2 ½ Zeilen das wirklich Wichtige, das Bedeutende und vor allem, das Neue zu sagen.

Kurz gesagt: Die Kurzform braucht Konventionen.http://www.haiku.de/haiku2/navi/indexframe3_kriterien.html

Seit einiger Zeit arbeitet dieses Team am Aufbau eines deutschsprachigen saijiki (Jahreszeitenlexikon) .

The British Haiku Society was founded in 1990.
The BHS is pioneering the appreciation and writing of haiku in the UK, and has links also with similar organisations throughout the world.

There are currently approx. 300 members, four-fifths of whom live in the UK.

Members receive for their subscriptions the Society journal, Blithe Spirit, a newsletter called The Brief, a Members Address List, use of the Society's library (postal loans possible), various other occasional papers, and a vote at the AGM and biennial committee elections. Periodically members receive invitations to specially organised events, such as discussion groups, workshops and haiku walks, with a national conference held every year.

Our efforts in the fields of literature and education were recognised in 1996 by a Japan Festival Award (second place in tandem with Sadlers Wells Opera) the first prize being won by the British Museum.

Haiku Sighs of Nikola Madzirov, 2003

“Asphalt, but Sky”
When the writer feels that the time has come to cleanse the spirit, to cast off the burden from the complicated, theoretic and intellectual western aesthetics, then it is time for haiku.

“Haiku is natural as breathing. Inhale-exhale. That is the time interval of one haiku. The time spent for one human sigh, the basic inborn reason and consequence for life. Once inhaled, the haiku requires a repetition, which results in poetical human sighs gathered in a collection of haiku songs, which is later recreated, with an intention to multiply the human sighs that wait to be sung”, Viktor Sikov states about the book.

As Aleksandar Prokopiev says, each person, and especially the haiku poet, owns a device for reading of thoughts and feelings, although sometimes the haiku can be born even with closed eyes. “Nikola Madzirov, undoubtedly owns that gift. He is capable of selecting the situations and experiences that preserve their core in 17 syllables, seen with a natural and smart view”.

The Swedish Haiku Society Svenska Haiku Sällskapet

The Swedish Haiku Society, a non-profit association, was established on 7 October 1999 in Stockholm.

Kai Falkman, President of the Swedish Haiku Society


The Swedish Haiku Society plans to organize the Second European Haiku Conference in the medieval town of Vadstena 8-10 June 2007.

The Swedish Haiku Society hopes that many haiku poets from Europe will come to the conference as well as some special guests from Japan and USA.


...........................................


Swedish Haiku
Anders Österling's review of Asatoro Miyamori's A anthology of Haiku ancient and modern in the daily Svenska Dagbladet (1933) was probably the first broader Swedish presentation of the genre. Österling gave a vivid description of "the shortest poem of the world" where he confessed not being too familiar with the subject. He mentions how the Japanese sense of humour makes him feel unsure - it can be hard to tell the serious from the fun in a poem where "the smile is so fleeting and discreet".


In 1959 the first edition of classical Japanese Haiku in Swedish translation appeared Haiku. Japansk miniatyrlyrik - thanks to the Romanian musician and translator Jan Vintilescu.


In 1961 the Swedish poet Bo Setterlind published a collection of short, haiku-inspired poems Några ord att fästa på siden. He was the first of several renown Swedish authors to show an active interest in haiku.


The next collection of Swedish haiku though, was to be written by a diplomat: the UN: s Secretary General, Dag Hammarsköld. After the plane crash that killed him the in Kongo in 1961, one found a manuscript entitled Vägmärken that was published in 1963: a diary-form collection of notes, observations and haiku verses. (Auden's not too faithful translation entitled Markings appeared in 1964).


Since japanologist Lars Vargö, editor of the Swedish Haiku Society's magazine Haiku, did publish Japansk haiku. Världens kortaste diktform, Swedish readers also have access to a comprehensive work that opens for a deeper understanding of what haiku really is about. Including translations of some three hundred modern Japanese haiku this book that appeared in 2003 not only introduces history and definitions, but also gives some clues to contemporary Japanese developments.
