    Haiku Moment on the Peaks

    “Haiku is not a shriek, a howl, a sigh, or a yawn; rather, it is the deep breath of life.”-Santoka Taneda

    for Adelaide M., Terry Collett, Richard Lynn Livesay


    O vilnius birds
    Don’t be weary-hearted
    Poets are here cheering you

    fog-drenched vilnius
    I search technique
    Of writing haiku

    Bees collect dew
    Flowers many-
    DPF 2009

    Silent whisperings
    Mystic hours-
    DPF 2009

    After death
    Resurrection possible
    With immortal haiku

    I speak in whisper
    To amber
    In vilnius

    With raindrops
    I anoint my body
    Before writing

    Quiet interaction:
    haiku, amber,
    vilnius labyrinth

    what a beautiful sight-
    brilliant poets
    reading haiku in vilnius

    baroque buildings
    restored houses
    there is amber wherever we look

    Sudden shower in vilnius
    A haiku poet
    Touches rain water

    on the road a poet-
    competing with the rain
    to attend vilnius haiku festival

    birds from 21 countries
    never stop singing in vilnius- druskininai
    one haiku after another

    poets reading haiku in vilnius
    red rose blossoming
    touches our nostrils

    winged horse
    pegasus crosses several nations
    DPF festival 2009

    haiku is life
    love and future:
    Europe’s culture capital

    dreamy twilight in Vilnius:
    rainbow of cultures
    a lovelier haiku festival was never held

    DPF Festival 2009
    will live as long as haiku is read
    I participated and found truth

    poetic fire hanging over us
    reveals rose and lotus
    yes, that’s DPF- vth WHA Conference 2009

    green grass better
    if it is wet-
    vilnius poets know that
    -Santosh Kumar,
    Vilnius, September 2009
