The Haiku

 

 

 "A falling leaf, thought I,

Fluttering back to the branch-

Was a butterfly "

Moritake 

 

For centuries, the haiku has been an integral part of Japonese cultural and spiritual life - a concise,evocative verse form that crystallises the poet`s intuition of life,nature,and beauty.

In a tradition that stretches into the distant past, Japonese artists re-create haiku in paintings,transforming poetic visions into lasting images of beauty and colour.

 

The theme of Moritake`s  haiku is the harmony of man and nature

 

A butterfly, a falling leaf- they are the same in the mind of one who has beheld the unity of natur´s manifold handiwork.
