A Prayer For New Year

Happy, happy New Year,
A year without fear and tear,
A year with all the wealth,
A year with best of health,
A year for the fulfillment of wishes,
A year to feast with delicious dishes,
A year to get showers of prosperity
And no tough time and all charity.

A year with all the divine tribulations,
A year without any trepidation,
Blissful, bright, blowing declaration,
Wonder, wine, eventful conviction.
Are these New Year resolution?
Or begging for free perversions.

we say that it is a haiku, but actually it is a hokku, the opening verse of an haikai, or a collaborative 'comic linked' poetry - therefore, even if it can stand alone, we need to remember that it is the beginning of a 'tale in verse' told by a number of poets (3,4 or more) . As Haruo Shirane points out, ''The basic idea of linked verse was to create a new and unexpected world out of the world of the previous verse.'' ''it was imaginary literature, .. the poets who participated in linked verse moved from one world to the next, across time, and across space.''

A simple, yet complex haiku in that so much back story is apparent. Alone in the cold morning of another day... enduring, and aware of the small pleasure that is his fortune to have. Embracing the positive in the midst of less than ideal circumstances. Open and inviting enhancement as all good haiku should.
Even though is written by a japanese poet and it is a Haiku, it reminds me of the cold mornings of Korea, the water in the kettle mixed with corn to purify it. Simplicity.
