Morning Haiku and Waka – February 15, 2015

painted dream tree

this tree
just a vision
I dreamed
this morning

oniric garden
wingless flight in boundless skies
fire-birds fly

gardener of sleep
dream weaver works day and night
creating new worlds

what is reality
this lucid dream of here and now
or lucid night worlds

This first video was made many years ago … and below is our pianist in 2010 for his 85th birthday … he plays the same wonderful piece … He left us on the first of February this year.


that August evening
from infinity to “now”
you entered my dreams
accompanied by Satie
thus you were born my dear son

  1. I’m *finally* back from a month wandering rural India without (mostly) network connections. But I’m in luck—not only Bastet Haiku and Waka but Satie, one of my favorite composers ever. I should probably go back to bed because there’s no way for this day to get better!


    • Ah … your honeyed pen has made me nearly swoon! Happy you’re safely back from rural India (envy!!!) my dear and I’m so happy you enjoyed the post … a mix: a tribute to Aldo Ciccolini (I love how he played Satie) and my morning haiku and waka! Thanks so much for dropping by this morning … it is I who’ll have to go back to bed to be sure that this wasn’t just part of a dream 😉

  2. This music is fantastic! It makes me want to put on pink ballet shoes, a gossamer skirt, and dance for hours and hours, in an empty studio with huge windows. Incredible. Thank you so much for this amazing music and your wonderful poems.


  3. A lovely post – both words and music. I’m particularly taken with the ‘gardener of sleep’, which isn’t an image I’ve come across before and which manages to seem both natural and unexpected 🙂
