In-Depth Haiku: Free Discussion Area / Deja -vu? Coincidence?
« on: June 26, 2021, 03:27:45 PM »
Hi All,

This is not a new issue but nonetheless, I imagine it still affects many poets. In haikai poetry there is a long tradition of recognizable allusion to previous poets as in the "Wanderer’s Willow" haiku where Basho and Buson clearly refer to Saigyo's poem. Basho’s haiku alludes to Saigyo’s poem which describes Saigyo pausing before a stream beneath the willow by the roadside. In Buson’s poem, he describes a scene where leaves fall from the willow and the stream has dried up, exposing the stones at the location.


In the current haikai scene here are two poets, two poems. Is this an instance of reference to an earlier poem or a coincidence of images and scenes or a deja-vu as in Michael Welch's article, Some Thoughts on Déjà-ku

The Lure of the Threshold

The thread that runs through this cycle of poems is rich in faith, in dream, myth, magic, and the music of words. I know that each haibun rises with questions and ends with a haiku planted squarely in the here and now—here on Earth.

sirens through the night moth in a jar”


Glenn G Coats

Presenting her haibun as ‘poems,’ Chhoki recounts snippets of supernatural stories, confidential visions. All invite us in. Yet all usher us out at the end with a haiku spell – pine branches rise / like lammergeier wings; a blue thrush whistles in the rain; rope bridge to the shrine / Orion at dawn.
