Do you want to know how we evaluate the submitted haiku? These are the characteristics we search for:

• Kireji (切れ字), a cut between the 1st and the 2nd verses, or between the 2nd and the 3rd; the cut can be grammatical, as a sign of punctuation, or it can be a cut in the meaning, like two different images.

• Kigo (季語), an explicit or implicit reference to a season, that defines the time of the year in which the haiku is composed or referred to.

• Sabi (寂), the sense of the inexorable passage of time, the beauty or serenity that accompanies the advance of age, when the life of the objects and its impermanence are highlighted by patina and wear or by any visible repairs.

• Wabi (侘寂), the taste for frugal and natural things, rustic simplicity, freshness or silence; it can be applied to both natural and artificial objects, or even non-ostentatious elegance.

• Mono no aware (物の哀れ), empathy with nature and human life; the "feeling of things", nostalgia, regret for the passing of time, understanding of the changeability and of the transience without suffering.

• Yūgen (幽玄), sense of wonder and mystery; it represents the state of mind produced by the inexplicable fascination of things, the feeling of an 'other' universe, full of mysterious unity.

• Karumi (軽み), beauty in simplicity; poetic beauty reflected in its simplicity, free from preconceptions and moral judgment.

• Shiori (しおり), gentleness; the levity and the delicate charm that radiates from the verses, where things are evoked in the reader without aggressiveness or excessive explicitness.

Esta semana me ha gustado mucho el Haiku de @oscarina porque con la sola palabra "omnispresente" expresa lo que yo sentí al ver la fotografía de @marcoriccardi. El Haiku de @agmoore es sencillo pero expresa la armonía de las líneas con la vida urbana. Ambos Haiku son construcciones poéticas para embellecer el diario andar de la gente.

This week I liked the Haiku of @oscarina because with the single word "omnispresente" it expresses what I felt when I saw the photograph of @marcoriccardi. The Haiku of @agmoore is simple but expresses the harmony of the lines with urban life. Both Haiku are poetic constructions to beautify the daily walk of the people.

·

Well, my vote goes to @manoldonchev and @javert68justice. What I like in both haiku is that time is somehow stretched as if it is on pause. Thus, the peace and the fullness of eternity peeks from the words. Humans are not a disturbance here, but a perfect fit to the universe both haiku describe.

@javert68justice writes:

they dance to the tune of time...
Life awaits

As if @manoldonchev replies :

To ease the minds of humans
Order in all things

Aprecio ejercicios de mucha calidad poética. En los que más me gustaron noto dos tendencias: una que se dirige a dar su percepción de lo mostrado por la foto a partir de la perspectiva que lo mira: el ojo, la omni presencia, el dios, tendencia en las que ubico los competentes ejercicios poéticos de @oscarina, @marcybetancourt y @evagavilan; la otra, en la que advierto una visión acerca de la significación trascendente de lo mostrado, donde alojaría los trabajos de @oacevedo, @solperes, @javert68justice y @aurodivys. Como hay que decidir por uno, voto por el de @javert68justice, por observar una identificación mayor, desde mi parecer, con el sentido tradicional del haiku, donde resaltaría la sencillez, la percepción de lo humano y el paso del tiempo.

I appreciate exercises of great poetic quality. In the ones that I liked the most I notice two tendencies: one that aims to give his perception of what is shown by the photo from the perspective that looks at it: the eye, the omnipresence, the god, a tendency in which I place the competent poetic exercises of @oscarina, @marcybetancourt and @evagavilan; the other, in which I notice a vision about the transcendent significance of what has been shown, where the works of @oacevedo, @solperes, @javert68justice and @aurodivys would be housed. As you have to decide for one, vote for @javert68justice, for observing a greater identification, from my point of view, with the traditional sense of haiku, where I would highlight simplicity, the perception of the human and the passage of time.

Es compleja la tarea de dar la interpretación a la hermosa fotografía de @marcoriccardi porque es compleja la realidad que retrata: un lugar de encuentro (perfectamente sugerido en el diseño del piso, que parece invitar a la confluencia; un área urbana, agradable, abierta, dispuesta para hacer un alto en el trajín cotidiano y que invita a la intimidad dentro de lo público. Una fotografía muy sociológica. Me encantó, @marcoriccardi.
Mi haiku preferido, entonces, es el de @manoldochev porque recoge la belleza del trabajo arquitectónico, para lo humano, y el orden en las cosas que es el trabajo de la cultura en general.

Perfect symmetry
To ease the minds of humans
Order in all things

It is a complex task to give interpretation to the beautiful photograph of @marcoriccardi because it is the reality that portrays: a meeting place (perfectly suggested in the design of the floor, which seems to invite to the confluence; an urban, pleasant, open area. Very sociological photography, I loved it, @marcoriccardi.
My favorite time, then, is that of @manoldochev because it picks up the beauty of the architectural work, for the human, and the order in the things that is the work of the culture in general.

Perfect symmetry
To relieve the minds of humans.
Order in all things

smooth channels - tile etched
the slow convergence of minds
led by many feet

·

If I'm not wrong, this is the first time you participate, so...Welcome to Mizu no Oto!
I think that in many cases you participants talk to each other through your haiku. So here is that @salvao speaks of an inertia that sheds humanity from a center, to which you respond by talking about a convergence. I really like reading you!

Stripes, squares and arches.
Strolling, sitting and looking,
People want to eat

A colorful offering with much activity. An Urban vibe.

·

I knew that the "urban" setting of the photo would have caused many interesting changes.
This haiku would not disfigure in a gendai (modern) collection!

·

Thank you!

Perfect symmetry
To ease the minds of humans
Order in all things

·

You're right. There is symmetry, a kind of unity to the picture. Nice impression.

·

Oh, I like your haiku very much. It is somehow soothing :) Поздрави!

·
·

Добра среща :)

·

Interesting statement! The order relieves the work for the human mind ... I do not know if it is true, certainly order and cleanliness transmit beauty, according to the canons of haiku. Thank you!

·
·

Thanks. I may have even touched the OCD in each of us.

Bravo Marco, this is an interesting shot!

·

Guess where it is...;)

..Chile? I'm very curious now. Must be one of your trips...

Haha. Love it!!!

Gracias @bananafish por seguir brindándonos esta ventana poética. Me ha gustado el haiku de @salvao, me gusta la expresión con que define a la actitud de los seres humanos inercia desbocada
Aquí dejo mi participación de esta semana. https://steemit.com/haikucontest/@evagavilan/mizu-no-oto-every-image-has-its-haiku-contest-week-12

Gracias @evagavilan! Tenemos que considerar tu comentario como un vote por @salvao? Yo creo que sì, aunque no escribiste abajo el comentario especial.

Saludos, amantes del haiku. Les dejo mi entrada al concurso de esta semana. Suerte a los participantes. https://steemit.com/haikucontest/@gracielaacevedo/convergencia-haiku

Pasa la gente.

Por los arcos airosos,
la convergencia.

The people pass.
By the graceful arches,
the convergence.

Hey, there. I am in this week. Here is my entry.

Cheers!

Es verdaderamente difícil decantarse por un solo poema habiendo tantos trabajos de confección tan brillantes. Sin embargo, acatando la norma del juego, hago mi voto para la compañera @oscarina:

Omnipresente...
Veo un discreto danzar
desde las alturas...

porque con el primer verso nos ubica de una vez en la actividad intrigante que se muestra en la hermosa fotografía de @marcoriccardi, para luego describir con un lenguaje muy sencillo que la voz lírica ─que pudiera ser de un dios o de cualquier otro sujeto que lo abarca todo desde su perspectiva─ observa el movimiento y el tiempo de cada uno de los participantes y del contexto en general.
