summer night
even the stars
are whispering
to each other

– kobayashi issa

Haiku is the speech of pure vibration. Unsullied by human desire, perceived by total receptiveness, it exists when one does not. It is the description of the world before a human set foot on it. The world before man trampled upon its flowers to search for his gold. The world as it is at the far expanses of the universe, infinitely frightening, terribly silent, unfathomably tranquil. It is beautiful because it is directly rooted in creation, having not yet severed its link to the sacred source of all that is. It is terrifying because no human being exists in it, and hence it lasts only a few moments, before human self assertion regains its domination.
