In-Depth Haiku: Free Discussion Area / Re: How to lend voice to the speaker in haiku

re:

Do you think understanding the artist, as much as we can, gives that white space within a painting when viewing?

I write and continue to write about whitespace/negative space. Do we need to know anything about an artist or any other kind of author? I feel both no, and yes. We are coloured by what we think and what we think is coloured by what is out there, mostly incorrect.


I don’t think we have to know everything about an artist before viewing their work because, as you say, Alan, this can influence how we absorb it. However, often it can be interesting and  enriching when I read the accompanying notes in a gallery after viewing a painting.

Perhaps he's just left the brothel?

Oh, this comment did make me smile, Jan. But it’s my birthday weekend and perhaps I’m being too frivolous!

Thank you!

Nearly four years later there is funding to bring it forward. It was a lovely surprise to attend the British Haiku Society Annual General Meeting, and see that funding was on the list.

I've often done collaborations, one with Corian® but not with glass until now.

warm regards,
Alan

I'm excited to hear the full official announcements and events around this, but in the meantime I received this message this morning:


Dear Alan,

Thank you again for your submissions. The project  has ended up attracting an extremely strong response, 352 poems from 42 poets, which will enable us to meet our aim of featuring a range of subjects, voices and regions. Striking a balance between these different elements has been difficult but we have now made our decisions about which 20 haiku we want to feature and would like to include your haiku from Castle Beach, Falmouth:


beachcombing…
a periwinkle rotates
deeper into itself



Castle Beach, Falmouth, England, U.K.

.

Congratulations on being chosen Alan, in a hard won battle.

At the British Haiku Society AGM last December it was declared that the society would be happy to donate a sum necessary for this project to go forward. I was pleased that the vote was a majority one.

Watch this space. :-)

This monoku from Johnny's Rosary Haiku Sequence 'Beads of Glass' for Carlos Colón is particularly pertinent (published by Bones - journal for contemporary haiku ) For those who know the rosary it is from the Glorious Mysteries.
