PE: Interview with some dA Haiku Masters
Hello all
As part of this weeks projecteducate, we have interviewed two members whose work is almost entirely focussed on fixed form poetry- and in this instance Eastern Poetry. 
In my early deviantART days, Eastern poetry writing went through a popular phase. There were regular HaikuWriMo months, challenges and clubs; some of which still continue in their own ways. Two members who have continued that popularity and developed their skills in these forums are Jade-Pandora and moyanII- both owners of a huge collection of Eastern poetry, DD's and beautiful creative writing. Both these delightful deviants have taken the time to share their experiences in this interview.
 
Jade-Pandora was born in Los Angeles, California. She started writing seriously in 2001, joined deviantArt in 2003, and in 2007 discovered dA’s literature community when she stumbled into the HaikuWriMo of October 2007. Her fascination with Haiku dre

back to the main topic!

Haiku Without Counting
The idea that haiku should be written in 17 syllables, arranged in three line pattern of 5-7-5 is perhaps the best known 'rule' governing the writing of haiku. It is also the least understood, and the least important, particularly when composing haiku in English. This rule is at best actually a convention, one that emerged from conditions relative to Japanese culture and language. It is a convention ill-suited to the English language.
Japanese poets count on, a sound represented by one kana; the closest English equivalent to this is a syllable. Thus, the 'syllable' count is a function of the Japanese language, in that Japanese is written in kanji (Chinese characters-which can contain one or more on) and kana (Japanese phonetic script).  There are also on, called 'particles' in English, that serve a precise function in Japanese, but that have no English equivalent; these are used in haiku create a pause, provide emphasis, or sometimes simply to

kobayashi Issa

大根引き大根で道を教へけり
daiko hiki daikon de michi wo oshie keri

with the harvested radish,
he pointed at the way to go.

**


it's the season for harvesting the radish and issa was a newcomer who needed direction from a local who knows the way, but everyone was busy at their job of plucking out the their precious crop.

finally he found this farmer who had just successfully unearthed one of his radishes who would tell him the way by pointing with the radish he was holding in his hand.

this is indeed an expertly chosen snapshot of a farmer's life that shows the diligence in their work and the hospitality and kindness showed to a mere traveller.
it also conveys some feelings of uncertainty issa felt while he was on his journey, although the mood was tinted by his usual sense of humor.

*~*~*~*

i'm just a rather new haijin but the deviantART literary community had decided to bestow upon me the honor to represent "haiku and eastern poetry" in the projecteducate's week of poetry form.

an interview was conducted and posted in BeccaJS's journal:

PE: Interview with some dA haiku masters

anyway, i am no master of haiku ^^;
i am just the 'farmer' who had worked hard, and when you ask me the way, i will point the way to the best of my knowledge.
also, with the fruit of my labour: my collection of haiku in the gallery.

study of japanese language together with apprenticeship in haiku-writing is a long-standing hobby.

painting is another love of my life. i haven't been able to shake it off no matter how tied down by other affairs in real life.

traditional paintings were done using chinese ink on rice paper. i also do graphite and color pencil drawings, as well as digital art by photoshop 7.0.

see my other artwork at the default dA art account: :iconmoyan:

enjoy.
