Haiku of the Pearldiver: A Collection of Haiku Verses About Life: To Hope, Feel, Enjoy and Share.

A Beauty in Woodblock Prints.

The Variations of Haiku.

In Haiku of the Pearldiver; A Collection of Haiku Verses About Life: To Hope, Feel, Enjoy and Share; true poetic mastery is measured by the sensuality of those visual pictures that each Haiku verse paints for the reader.

This special selection of Haiku verse; has been intentionally written in a variety of styles that best demonstrate how to form powerful, yet simple haiku; from the scenes, feelings, people and events of everyday life.

In the 60 verses within this collection of Haiku Verses; Pearldiver has written his unique, original Haiku on the important subjects of Love, Seasons, Animals, Samurai, Pearl Diving, Children, Hope, Wisdom and more. Truly a visual collection of delight, humor and life;

Other Haiku Works written by Pearldiver on HubPages:

Haiku of the Samurai Warrior

Seasons of Haiku

Father of Mine

Please Note: When reading the Haiku within this collection: try to visualize the scene that the author is describing. Sometimes, it pays to read the verses out loud, to appreciate its depth. Many verses have more than a singular interpretation; so explore these Haiku, with this in mind. There are sixty reasons in this collection, to feel, enjoy and to share, the sensual power of Haiku.

If you are learning to write Haiku, then I hope that you will see that you do not have to stick to the 5 - 7 - 5 traditional syllable structure in your writing. Although the true purity of Haiku rests in its traditional structural techniques; some of the best Haiku written in Japan has come about as a result of the author making an intentional subtle departure from the old ways.

 

Simple Lines Can and Often Do Inspire at a far Higher Level.

Bonsai reflects the power of the simplicity in nature, that is further crafted and shaped over time skillfully and emphasises the growing beauty of a stunted tree.

Thoughts of Wisdom:

Wise words have always inspired the Japanese, who as a race have exercised a level of self control, focus and direction that Western civilisations could never understand. By maintaining a close relationship to their environment, the Japanese culture also found pleasure in Haiku that reflected everyday life and wisdom.

Thoughts of Hope:

Hope has always been a test of faith that varies from person to person. Hope is not a tangible thing; hope only becomes tangible when the dream comes true. How do you write about such things in Haiku?

Thoughts of Winter:

In Haiku, the seasons are by far the most popular events to write about. In each season there is a single event that best describes the season, just as each season can be reflected in color.

How Smart These Geese Are.

All Creatures Have Purpose.

Thoughts of Animals:

As with most civilizations, the Japanese also had animal breeds that lived within their society. Geese for example served not only as a food source; but also as watchdogs, honking when any change occurred in their environment. The Japanese even trained seabirds to catch fish. Carp were revered, every living creature was important in some respect. Writing Haiku on this subject is very easy, we are surrounded by a million Haiku yet to be written of our pets for example.

And Umbrellas and Things.

In Japan, the umbrella as with the fan, are extensions of a personality. They have long been used seductively as well as practically. Of course there is always practicality in seduction, I guess.

Thoughts of Spring:

Spring is the season of new life and can be celebrated in Haiku for that reason. Everywhere the environment is bursting at its seams to offer us a sign that tells us that our hopes were granted. Nature knows best; we as people often miss her subtle clues.

A Favorite Season.

Thoughts of Summer:

The season of Summer is the season that offers warmth to every facet of life. If you are considering writing Haiku, this is an excellent subject to practice with.  Think about the special things that occur, the fruits, the holidays, summer love, how summer varies from the other seasons, or merely the balmy days or nights.

A Warrior Needs a War.

Thoughts of Samurai At War:

The Samurai were warriors and in serving the Code of Bushido, they also served a single master, with a collective goal. Discipline allowed the Samurai consider death to be an honor. As fighting men, one of the hardest thngs in life that the Samurai Warrior had to face was an extended period of time, in which peace prevailed.

The Master Samurai's Secrets,

A Busy Boredom in Peace.

Thoughts of Samurai At Peace:

Peacetime for the Samurai was not always a time of inner peace.  Many could not adjust to the enforced peace that came from political stability.  They were trained from birth to learn, apply and master the martial arts and the art of war.  Samurai who did adjust, found that their restlessness could be countered in further developing a balance in other arts, including Haiku.  Their world was changing, for many that was unbearable.

Free Diving for Pearls.

A Single Breath and Down to seek an oyster that would give up its life and its treasure.
A Single Breath and Down to seek an oyster that would give up its life and its treasure.

Thoughts of Pearl Diving:

Pearl diving in ancient times was done entirely as a free diving event. The best pearl divers in Japan over the years, tended to be women who dived in teams of two, from a small boat. Today, the pearl industry is quite different, with pearl bearing oysters being grit seeded and grown in netted pots offshore as opposed to the old ways of finding and killing the oysters in their natural environment. To write Haiku on a subject like this; firstly visualize the lifestyle and consider the things that were important to the subject.

It makes the world go round.

Thoughts of Love:

What can be said of Love in just a few words? Writing good Haiku on this subject is a must; as poor verse will always result in a negative response. Love Haiku has to be a visual picture of the emotion; perhaps even the words that you could not say; yet feel. Love gives us a whole raft of different emotions, feelings and hopes. Exploring the senses in Haiku requires the author to condense love into a short and powerful verse, without losing the feeling. Not such a hard thing to do when you allow yourself to love and be loved; is it?

* * * * * *

What of This Love

It Makes My Head Spin

And To Say Yes To Everyone

We Click; Not Like Broken Beetles;

Like Fire Flies to Lanterns

And Dark Nights.

Thoughts of Unfriendly Cities:

In ancient Japan the Samurai were predominantly from rural districts, many of which did not develop into cities.  Over time small towns like Edo develop into large cities and people of those cities clearly considered their rural neighbors to be of little importance.  Samurai were to be obeyed in their world, but in the cities disrespect for a Samurai’s position became increasingly more common.  Periods of peace meant that there was little call for warriors; warriors found cities a place to lose their ways and ultimately their place in society.

Season of great colors.

Thoughts of Autumn:

Anywhere in the world, Autumn casts its spell through spectacular colors as deciduous trees drop leaves in preparation for Winter. Autumn is regarded as a season of change for that reason. Just look around your world and see the amazing power of nature as she provides us with. Those changes are your subjects when you choose to write on the beauty and quirks of Autumn.

It is My Very Favorite Time to Walk

I think that red bird with that long beak is called a Kingfisher. It is up there just below the Japanese girl under an umbrella. I learned that name yesterday, trying to translate a Spanish Nana, a cradle song, into English with a Google translator doing the "pinche" work. A "pinche" is like a bellboy, but works only in the kitchen.

And the Google translator came up with that name, Kingfisher.

HiBlue Parrot, thanks for reading this. Yes you are, or rather your translator is right that bird is a Kingfisher. In New Zealand we call them the Kotare.

It is good you have put a copyright on these verses. So many times we read and hear words aranged in such an exquisite way, and wonder about the author. They get lost, and we never get to see more of the richness they gave to the world.

Very few people have the ability, like you, to describe a feeling in three short lines. I just love this, it is absolutely amazing.

The picture collection you have chosen, stole my heart - just awesome.

You've done it again. This truly was not that hard to write and inspiration comes from looking at the life and environment that surrounds us. I have never learnt writing, poetry, grammer or anything like that... I just write the feeling honestly and in that way; it gives a voice to it... nothing more than that Rebekah.. just a raw and untrained energy. Thank you for caring... take care.
