Un de le hokku hibernales le plus bones es iste, de Chiyo-ni:
Iste verso nobis mostra le character Yin del hiberno (movimento es Yang, immobilitate es Yin). Videmus anque le Yin de hiberno in le nive que copera le campos e montes (le nive frigide es anque Yin).
In iste hokku trovamus le silentio e frigor que si ben exprimen le natura del hiberno.
(Iste es un experimento. Si tu eres un parlator de un lingua romance, potes leger lo?)
One of the best winter hokku is this, by Chiyo-ni:
In field and mountain
The snowy morning.
This verse shows us the Yin character of winter (movement is Yang, stillness is Yin). We see also the Yin of winter in the snow that covers the fields and mountains (the cold snow is also Yin).
In this hokku we find the silence and cold that so well express the nature of winter.
(As you can see, I am still experimenting with an auxiliary language that might enable more people to read this site. I began some time ago with Interlingua, and have adopted some modifications to it from David Stark’s “Latino Moderne,” which seems to loosen it up a bit and give it greater poetic possibilities. Of course I am a novice at this, so bear with me.
