*TAE WI THE ABBOT*

'Above all else, a haiku must be very simple and free of all poetic
trickery and make a little picture and yet be as airy and graceful as a
Vivaldi pastorelle,' wrote Jack Kerouac. The haiku in *Tea wi the
Abbot *exhibit
all these qualities. John McDonald's haiku celebrate both rural and urban
landscapes, and are marked by their precision in capturing fleeting moments
of beauty.

Alan Titley has commented: 'These poems in the Scots language are an
invitation to see more clearly, to hear more sharply, to feel more
soulfully...These verbal explosions echo in the chambers of wisdom'. The
poems have been translated into graceful Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock,
Ireland's foremost practitioner of haiku and tanka.

*John McDonald*

John is a retired stone-mason living in Edinburgh who came to haiku in the
mid-nineties and fell in love with the genre. He writes in Scots, one of
the two languages native to Scotland (the other being Gaelic). His
bi-lingual web blog attracts an international readership:

Over 80 of John's haiku have featured in the weekly column *Haiku na
Seachtaine* in the online newspaper *Tuairisc.i*e. Some of these, along
with new haiku, will feature in the Dublin and Belfast shows:

alane nou

tae reek o pish

            boladh múin
            ag teacht ón seanóir

*TAE WI THE ABBOT/ TAE i dTEANNTA AN ABA*



*'Above all else, a haiku must be very simple and free of all poetic
trickery and make a little picture and yet be as airy and graceful as a
Vivaldi pastorelle*,' a scríobh Jack Kerouac, máistir haiku atá curtha i
láthair i nGaeilge cheana ag *IMRAM*. Tá na cáilíochtaí sin a luaigh
Kerouac ar fáil go fial sa leabhar aoibhinn seo *Tea wi the Abbot. Tae i
dTeannta an Aba. *Déanann tírdhreacha an mháistir Albanaigh ceiliúradh ar
an gcathair agus ar an tuath araon agus is cruinn agus is gonta mar a
bheireann sé ar mhóimintí áille neamhbhuaine.

Is é a deir *Alan Titley* faoin leabhar neamhghnách seo: "Osclaítear do
shúile! Osclaítear do chluasa! Osclaítear d'anam leamh laethúil! Sin é is
brí leis na miondánta móra seo. Mura gcuireann siad dealg ionat, tá
craiceann mós tiubh agat. Mura músclaíonn siad do chéadfaí uile is cuma nó
marbh tú. Mura gcuireann siad dinglis trí lár do dhrólainne is cuma nó
cuntasóir thú. Nasc álainn iad seo idir dhá theanga eile Shruth na Maoile,
is an taoide sin eatarthu."

Tá breis is ceithre scór haiku de chuid  McDonald curtha i láthair phobal
na Gaeilge sa tsraith *Haiku na Seachtaine* ar an nuachtán *Tuairisc.ie*
agus seo cnuasaithe anois é sa leabhar aoibhinn seo, maisithe ag *Mathew
Staunton*.


*John McDonald*

Saor cloiche ar scor é John McDonald agus cónaí anois air i nDún Éideann.
Tháinig sé ar haiku i lár na nóchaidí agus thug gean mór don seánra. I
mBéarla na hAlban a scríobhann sé, ceann de theangacha dúchais na tíre sin
i dteannta Ghaeilge na hAlban. Tá lucht leanúna idirnáisiúnta ag an mblag
aige:

Gabriel Rosenstock did get back to me and I think he meant December this year, and not November. :)
