Coates and Lesmian | Coates i Leśmian - The mist of "un-signified" | Mgła "bezznaczenia" - Haiku / Haikuish or quasi-haiku / haikuish quotes (7) | Haikowe lub prawie haikowe cytaty (7)


[...] wytyczyć granicę, od której wieloznaczność wiersza przeobraża się w mgłę "bezznaczenia", a intencja poety wymyka się spod jego kontroli.

(Paul Coates , Identyczność i nieidentyczność w twórczości Bolesława Leśmiana. Studium o tautologii paradoksie., PIW, Warszawa 1986, s.7.)
[...] to trace the borderline, from which the ambiguity of poem transforms into the mist of "un-signified", and the poet's intention slips out from under control.

O tłumaczeniu haiku | on translation of haiku (1)

Każdy tłumacz japońskiego haiku pożądając idealnego przekładu, odziany w platoniczne szaty, podąża do jaskini, w której w końcu odnajduje jedynie cienie.

(Lech Sz.)

Every translator of Japanese language-haiku, desiring the ideal body of its piece of translation, dressed in a Platonic robe, proceeds into a cave and finally finding only the shadows in it.

(translation by myself)

cutting a rose | ścinając różę

ścinając różę...
chmury
w jej filiżance

cutting a rose...
the clouds
in her tea cup

First Prize:

the familiar cough
of the neighbor's old Chevy
winter solitude

Third Prize :

In other place I've found also this:


The conference was an absolute blast. Saturday night we got the results of the Tokutomi Haiku Contest that the society held this spring, which was judged by two haiku masters in Japan. People from all over the world entered the contest, and my haiku won third prize in! Here is it is:

Japanese hieroglyph | japoński hieroglif - Haiku / Haikuish or quasi-haiku / haikuish quotes (6) | Haikowe lub prawie haikowe cytaty (6)

Japońskie haiku to wciąż-niedokończony-hieroglif.
[L.Sz.]

The Japanese haiku is still-unfinished-herioglyph.
[L.Sz.]

zaćmienie księżyca | eclipse of the moon

zaćmienie księżyca
w zakurzonym lustrze
wciąż ja?

eclipse of the moon
in the dusty mirror
still me?


To haiku mogłoby posłużyć jako komentarz do pewnego obrazu Rene Magritte'a:

Ezra Pound - Haikuish or quasi-haiku / haikuish quotes (5) | Haikowe lub prawie haikowe cytaty (5)

Senseless haiku-like sentence?
The 'one image poem' is a form of super-position, that is to say it is one idea set on top of another. I found it useful in getting out of the impasse in which I had been left by my metro emotion. I wrote a thirty-line poem, and destroyed it because it was what we call work 'of second intensity'. Six months later I made a poem half that lenght; a year later I made the following haiku-like sentence.
The apparition of these faces in the crowd:
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I dare say it is meaningless unless one has drifted into a certain vein of thought. In the poem of this sort one is trying to record the precise instant when a thing outward and objective transforms itself, or darts into a thing inward and subjective.
The article  Vorticism was first published in Fortnightly Review, Vol. XCVI, Sept. 1, 1914, new series No. DLXXIII, pp. 461-471. Reprint in: Ezra Pound: a critical anthology. Edited by J.P. Sullivan, Harmondsworth, Penguin, 1970, pp. 53-54. 

'Wiersz jednoobrazowy' jest formą nawarstwień, innymi słowy - jedno pojęcie nakłada się na drugie. Odnalazłem w tym możliwość wyjścia z impasu, do którego doprowadziły mnie emocje związane ze stacją metra. Napisałem trzydziestowersowy wiersz i zniszczyłem go, był bowiem tym, co nazywamy dziełem 'rozproszonym'. Sześć miesięcy później napisałem wiersz dwa razy krótszy, rok później stworzyłem taki oto tekst w stylu haiku.
Zjawienie się tych twarzy w tłumie:
Płatki na wilgotnej, czarnej gałęzi. 

Śmiem twierdzić, że jest on bezsensowny, póki nie uniesie nas specyficzny sposób myślenia. W wierszu tego rodzaju poeta stara się zapisać precyzyjny moment, w którym zewnętrzny i obiektywny przedmiot ulega transformacji lub przekształca się momentalnie w coś wewnętrznego i subiektywnego.
