PDF Freestyle Haiku - Chapter 2 Kindle ☆ - Chapter æ æ

156 poems by Monk Mattō written between September 2010 and February 2011 During the five months I wrote these haiku I found myself drawn to elemental energies In particular I felt the wind Scientifically wind is the mixing of different bodies of air as they rise and fall To me wind is about change serendipity opportunity and renewalAir is essential in our lives and it is freuently taken for granted There's a lightness to air and similarly there's a lightness in many of these poems This chapter is about my spirit reconnecting with nature and the world It is in this chapter that my spirit breathes again mixing energy and life back into me Mattō About This Poetry Mattō's short poems may not seem like haiku because they do not follow the traditional form that many readers might expect These haiku are written in a free verse style that Mattō calls Freestyle Haiku He discovered the possibility of this freeing style of haiku from the writings of the Zen priest Santōka Teneda 1882 1940 He wandered and traveled during the later years of his life while writing haikuMattō enjoy's writing Freestyle Haiku because it allows him to express abstract and powerful feelings in only a few words free from a mandated structure The words on his page are the most direct crystallization of his feelings and experiences and the brevity of haiku draws attention to the exact words he choosesA meaning rich haiku can be challenging to read; treating one like prose will leave it flat The goal of a haiku is often to conjure up something beyond the words and their individual meanings The reader must add themselves to the poem to experience the words in the way they’re presented to try and feel the poem A good haiku will leave the reader with an experience About the Author Monk Mattō poet author photographer filmmaker artist inventor teacher engineer carpenter producer entrepreneur spiritualist martial artist Chimera wrestler and Jedi KnightOk maybe those last two are only true in a figurative sense Monk Mattō lives in the Washington DC area and enjoys cruising around on his old motorcycle
