Haiku fra parker

Af Niels Kjr

I begyndelsen af oktober 2014 udgav jeg sammen med amerikaneren Mark Schorr p forlaget Bookmark Press en digtsamling med titlen The Park. Mark Schorr vil vre kendt af mange af haikugruppens medlemmer, idet han sknt han bor i Boston to gange har deltaget i haikugruppens oplsninger p Store Bogdag p Hald, ligesom han i december 2013 holdt foredrag for os i Forfatterforeningens lokaler om den amerikanske haiku-tradition.

The Park indeholder, som titlen antyder, digte, der alle p den ene eller anden mde har parken som emne. Der er bde meget korte og meget lange digte i bogen, og nogle af dem kan lses i dansk oversttelse p sitet www.digtenu.dk . The Park kan i vrigt ses p sitet www.lulu.com under flgende link http://www.lulu.com/shop/mark-schorr-and-niels-kj%C3%A6r/the-park/paperback/product-21842212.html .

Her flger Niels Kjrs tre park-haiku

Born in a park
cast away on an island                                                                                                                                                
brought safely ashore

 

Like an Oriental Emerald                                                                                                                                                    
my park is hidden                                                                                                                                                             
at the end of the world

 

In the center of the city                                                                                                                                                        
the greens are served                                                                                                                                                          
for beast and birds

 

Og dernst tre haiku af Mark Schorr. De indgr i en serie p syv haiku tilegnet den store landskabsarkitekt Frederick Law Olmsted (ham med bl.a. Central Park i New York):

 

A hill he cant name                                                                                                                                                        
recedes into a blue haze
                                                                                                                                        
then it is Fairsted!

 

Let the drainage ditch                                                                                                                                                             
they say is needed right away                                                                                                                                   
be Muddy River

 

Two kinds of every tree                                                                                                                                                       
become an Arboretum
                                                                                                                                         
Garden of Eden
