      Renga and Haiku, a Japanese poetic form Origin ****** Approximately in the 13th century in Japan arose the poetic form of the Haiku. Haiku championships carried out, in the 17th century in Japan so that this short poetic form increased. The roots was the rhythm 5-7-5-7-7 (syllables) the Renga, a chain poem, develops from the Tanka, an other poetic form. A party-game was the Renga, in the 13 century. A verse consisted of 5-7-5 syllables rhythm the first player, the second player answers with a 7-7 syllables and so on. Both funny and dirty forms of the Haikai-Renga arisen. The independent art form of the Haiku arose from the Hokku, the start verse of the Haikai-Renga. The most important Japanese poets of the Hokku (Haiku) were Buson (1716-1783), Issa (1763-1827) and Shiki (1867-1902). It was called Haiku, only since the end of the 19th century, this poetic form spread in the 20th century in the whole world particularly in North America. What is a Haiku? ************** The form --------- The three-liner-poem is called Haiku and it consists of 17 syllables. 1st line 5 syllables 2nd line 7 syllables 3rd line 5 syllables The contents ------------- The Haiku describe somehow with the topic the nature or nature-pictures. Not important is he rhyme. You can’t explain a Haiku, you need a sense for it. Not only one truth has the Haiku, the interpretation is free for everybody. I learned to know Haiku in englishtown.de, an English school in the internet, at a writing-competition, therefore my first Haikus was written also in English. I wrote also Haikus in German and I will write my next Haiku in Bosnian-language. My English Haikus ------------------ Drew the summer-rain, risen rainbow to heaven all colour the world ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Burning summer wind present Fatahmorga
      na, a cool glass of beer ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ snow stings by flower sun replaces the winter green triumph over ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the woods the fox meets the hunter by daylight it not saw moonlight ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It shines the sun the earthworm very cries hopes for the rain I don't give my Haikus any titles, I think, the most important point of the Haikus is the liberty of the thoughts and headings only limit your thoughts. You can answer me with 7&7 syllables.

        Departure into an unknown area, it goes to southeast. The freight was 30 parcels and 6000 DM for orphans in Zenica and surroundings. We came from Thuringia via Austria to Maribor (Slovenia). We had a break at the first motel in Slovenia. The restaurant-manager was Croat and his wife was Slovenian. The room was stand kind, shower, TV, radio, everything was clean and proper. The transition to Croatia was interrupted by a mistrustful Croatian customs-officer, for 15 minutes. He wanted to know, what is in this full packed car and he opened two packets, he saw school utensils, toys, clothing and sweets and he let us through. I recommend everybody speak in German to the Croatian customs, if you can, because they like to use the German language. They can also speak English but they don't like the Russian-language. Than we went about Zagreb on the A4 to departure Okucani or Novi Varos. You can wish "a good day" in the national language, to the Slovenian and Bosnian customs but always remember the Bosnian custom can also be a Croat or a Serb. The frontier customs officer don't like, if have only parcels for one of the others ethnic groups, than you must wait for a long time, sometimes. The Bosnian customs opened three packets, too but at the end he wished “a good journey” we continued our tour. We chose the most beautiful but the longest way about Banja Luka. We saw Serbian villages at the first, little houses in reconstruction, very favourably was the price of petrol 1,30 DM/l. A lovely mountain road then stocked us to Jaice but respect, it was closed the bridge in Dabrac or the following Street, so that we had to drive about Mrkonjic degree, a detour. We still drank a last cup of coffee in Jaice and then we drove to Zenica. The Streets are very well to Bosnia, but you will find a lot of potholes in Bosnia, but you can buy remoulded tyres, every where. The police in Bosnia are of every ethnic group (Cro
        at, Bosnian and Serbian) and the uniforms are correspondingly various. Zenica, was a famous town of metal-industry, more than 47.000 people worked there before the war, but only 5000 people now. This industrial town has 150000 inhabitants, there are both 20-storied housing estates and little detached houses at the outskirts. The comforts of the flats corresponds to the fifties in Germany. There is no heating or water, sometimes. That’s why you can see filled water-bottles, everywhere. We went to our colleague, she lives in one of the skyscrapers in Zenica, and this evening didn't work the central heating, in this house. Of course we got Bosnian specialities soup, beef with rice, filled tomatoes and coffee by her. Than we went to our flat, cold water and a couple couches, that’s all what we needed. I would like to say, the installation of the waters and electric cables to say it looked very funny until adventurous. We went to our colleague to have breakfast in the morning and than we carried all parcels to her office. I also met there my orphan, his name is Muamer and we went to his dwelling-village. Muamer live in a house, it was built by his parents he lives there, with the family of his sister. His mother died as he was 8 years, by a explosion of a grenade, in the near of the house and his father was hurt in the war at the foot, he came into the hospital and he died there. The reception was it warmly, we ate the Bosnian specialities and we drank coffee again. We went to Sarajevo, in the afternoon, Muamer and his cousins Sanel and Anel showed us the old-town, ourselves. Sarajevo was destroyed in the war by snipers and shellfire, from the mountains around Sarajevo, you can see bullet holes everywhere. In the old-town are many little shops, mosques, pubs and coffees. Sarajevo is a normal town, now only the ruins you can see remember you for the war. In the old-town you can eat the best Tschewaptschitschi to a glass of yoghurt
        . Tschewaptschitschi is a kind of grilled sausage with onions and pitta bread. We went to the disco of Breza, in the evening. The band in the finest outfit, strange guitar sounds and the music was changing between Bosnian, Croatian, Turkish and Serbian music. Nobody was dancing, then began the first twice and minutes later, all was in movement. In this disco are only seats, Sanel had reserved one of the best tables, he knows there and in Sarajevo every second man or girl. The alcohol doesn't flow in currents there and nevertheless simply was a good atmosphere, conflicts are unthinkably. We stayed at home by Muamer’s (sisters)family, the living-conditions was just like the beginning of the eighties in Eastern Germany. We went to the mountains to Olovo (lead town), after the breakfast, there are mineral sources and there are also cure-hotels, it is definitely a place where you can go in holidays. The cause of this trip was Asim he lives in a little flat with his grandma, she shared her pension with him (92 DM per Month), she is a good grandma and we got there also the Bosnian coffee, that’s usually in Bosnian. We told her a little story. Years before, went an other team of our organisation in a Croatian pub and once of us said “Salemaleikum”, it was be quiet, hush until the waiter said “Hier nix Salemaleikum”. As the grandma heard "Salemaleikum“, she laughs warmly. It was dangerous to say “Salemaleikum” in a Croatian pub, it’s nearly the same if you go to Baghdad and say “Good Morning”, and “the best Wishes from the American President”. The same day we had to say “Good by” to Muamer, his family and friends. He wept a little, but I said I come back again. We went to Zenica to start the return journey in the next morning. We took two Moslem girls with us, Zlatka (15 years) and Indira (17 years). These two children ar
        e also orphans, like all of our 30 children. Overnight we stayed for a symbolic price of 50 DM for all in an Austrian hotel, the hotel manager is a friend of us. The next morning went home to Thuringia, I spoke the "guest father" he was nervous just like he get a baby, he self. These two girls had two weeks holidays, in the heart of Germany, Thuringia. We showed them the cities Rudolstadt, Weimar, Jena and our dwelling place. The return journey was organized with a friendly organisation from Berlin.

            A popular meeting point with the charm of a station waiting room. The exact address is Willbrook Road 1 in Dublin 14. The Yellow House is situated, very well on the way and it is located in the crossroads to the Grange Road (Rathfarnham). It was suitable very well as starting point for rendezvous, but that’s all of the good sides. You also can drink a Guinness there, however, it particularly wasn't comfortable there, and it was just shortly before reorganization, though. It had a little longer opening hour than the other pubs. I had never seen food but the cause can been the reorganization. Far of here an absolutely nice pub, sorry I forgot the name it’s with heavy wood tables and chairs any more and around the corner is a disco (Diana) with admission (7 oder8 Pound) only with disco music. I hope the Yellow House is loosing the kind of station waiting room character after the reorganization.

              The best-known pub mile in Dublin is called temple bar and in the centre directly is this pub with identical name. Because I was been once there, it is very full in the evening mostly. Of course there is live music without end, not real without end because all pubs without particular licence close at 11 p. m. (in the summer 11.30). Is it too full there that’s no problem should either, there are pub over pub and on the streets are musician from all countries. You are right here if like commotion, but if not you can go to the Porterhouse in the near. Face controls are usual there; they don’t like great groups and want to see your ID-Card. Then we divided us and we gone in after each other is purely. I didn't always have an ID-Card but I nevertheless came in, somehow worried.

                  As newcomer of classic music I had to be convinced by my Italian, Spanish and French friends first but I haven't regretted to listen to also once other music than otherwise. As school class we were there in that's why we paid only 5 pounds. The normal prices are 8, 11 or 14 pounds. It's no formal clothing to wear. It recommends himself to buy a programme, because to this day, some people wanted to go home, but it was only break. The Nationally Symphony Orchestra played work of Igor Markevitch, Ludwig van Beethoven and Jean Sibelius under management of the guest conductor Gerhard Markson. The first violin played Alan Smale, Miceal O ' Rourke at the piano and the conductor as said Gerhard Markson he was educated by Igor Markevitsch.

                    O’Donoghues is situated in the near of Stephens Green. You will find it in the extension of Stephens Green North in East direction the Merrion Row 15. The most famous Irish bands played here you can see the pictures on the wall. You can also see on the wall a Money-Collektion there is money from allover the World and also one piece of my old East-German money. Don’t frighten it’s very small but there is also a little room on the back and there is also a beer garden. I don’t speak about the toilet that’s not too clean but I think the beer and the Irish coffee is wonderful. This pub is preferred very well suitably for "drinking bouts" but not for somebody who is looking for the silence. You can also buy there very nice t-shirts for 6 Pound only with the words “I survived a night HIC in O’Donoghues”.

                      It isn't very easy to find the James-Joyce centre in the North Great Georges Street 35, you can see no symbol or sign to find it. Respect on the right at the door is a kind of bell which one must find first to find admission. It was not perfect, still reconstructions took place not equipped just at all corners and ends. They was painting every thing. The visit starts with a short lecture, then one video lecture and, later, you then can go, rummage and look at a couple of pictures in books by the house. I am sure this for literature lover will be interesting and i hope they soon finish the reconstruction.

                        100 kinds of beer, you can buy there, but not one Guinness. If you will drink a beer just like Guinness than you must say one pint of plain please. You can also test the brain blasta but be carefully the name is programm. You can also eat very nice sandwiches or many chicken variations but that's very hot!!! But the best is the music in the porterhouse every night different music but the same music program is the one week later. And don't forget the Highlight's from 6.-13 October Octoberfest bavarian beer from 1.- 8 Dezember the week of the belgian beer Very very very strong Test it for the science !!!
