HAIKU ON MAURITIUS – WORLD PREMIERE PIANO RECITAL by HIRAI MOTOKI

I was immensely honored and pleased to be the Special Guest of the Ambassador of Japan in Mauritius , H.E KAWAGUCHI Shuichiro at the WORLD PREMIERE PIANO RECITAL, HAIKU ON MAURITIUS (2022) inspired by Pink Moon by Anita Bacha by World Acclaimed Japanese Pianist and Composer, HIRAI MOTOKI at the Caudan Arts Centre,Mauritius on 31 August 2022.

I was also overwhelmed with joy that HIRAI MOTOKI drew his inspiration to compose the fabulous piece HAIKU ON MAURITIUS from my book PINK MOON-AN ANTHOLOGY OF HAIKU POEMS (2022) self published by Amazon.

Acclaimed worldwide for his imagination and sensitivity, London based Japanese composer/artist, HIRAI MOTOKI ,has appeared in over 100 countries across the globe, performing in prestigious venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall,Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, Vienna’s Konzerthaus and London’s Wigmore Hall.

The Guardian  – Hirai Motoki “a most brilliant and sensitive musical talent.”

The Piano Concert was a great success and included two Mauritius Premiere and exclusive solo recitals of J.SBach: Ardante Maestoso ,Mozart:Adagio. Schubert:By the Sea ,Schumann :Taumerel. Albéniz:Tango. Liszt:Maiden’s Wish,Chopin:Nocturne and Grieg: Wedding Day at Troidhaugen by Maestro Hirai Motoki

Maestro Hirai Motoki
A brief private meeting with Hirai Motoki at intermission, I posed for a photo with him, a signed copy of Pink Moon in his hands.

A memorable evening packed with mind blowing emotions for the audience and for me.

Seasons Flow – Haibun by Anita Bacha

The cruel wind blows,

Cold feet in thick woolen socks,

We lit the fireplace.



A slice of sun glides,

Under closed window curtains,

A cockerel crows.



Breakfast at the farm,

Fried eggs, bacon, and baked beans,

Tea with fresh cow’s milk.



Poppies in the field,

Glossy red under the sun,

Dancing in the breeze.




Barefoot on the grass,

Along rows of wildflowers,

We run happily.



Cut fragrant lilacs,

We borrow our neighbor’s vase,

Living room looks cute.



In the back garden,

Cheerful songs on drying line,

Birds poop on washing.



Under the plum tree,

Drinking home-made lemonade,

We sit side by side.



The sun is going down,

Grey clouds gather in the sky,

Quickly we move in.



Snuggly in our bed,

In the darkness of the night,

We hear the rainfalls.











Good morning,dear friends.

Thank you for viewing and reading my haibun. Hope you enjoyed it.

Anita Bacha.

Summer Vibes – Haiku Poems by Anita Bacha

On the wings of dawn

Pretty sunflowers unfold

Summer morn kudos

Sunflowers at dawn

Intertwined fingers

Summer floral parasol

Ethereal moments

Blooming flowers in tropical island, Mauritius

In the summer heat
Butterfly sits on best loved
Garden cone flower

Orange Cone Flower

Tropical sunshine
Flit butterfly can’t resist
Kissing orange bloom

Butterfly and orange flower

In the summer heat
Blue wisteria blazing
Over garden wall

Blue Wisteria

Opalescent beads
Last night showers on her folds
Yellow hibiscus

Hibiscus flowers

Many more flowers and haikus to come, my dear friends and readers. Enjoy these for the moment, brought to you with love.

SPRING HAIKU

Spring is the season we most look forward to in London specially after a rigid and cold winter.The budding of flowers is soothing.The air is full of promises as smiles flower on lifeless faces.Spring is my favorite season of the year, and yours too.

Spring here coincides with Sakura, the blooming of the cherry trees, in Japan. The transient yet lovely blossoms that appeal to the heart of every poet have greatly inspired me too . Enjoy!

I am sharing my haiku ‘The plum tree blossoms’ selected as haiku of the week by Japan Society London on 19/04/22 and two other included in their esteem website

https://www.japansociety.org.uk/haiku-corner

The first three haiku below-

The plum tree blossoms

In the neighbor’s unkempt garden

Spring embraces all

In the clear moonlight

Voluptuous pink bloom

Midst of marshmallows

Back from school

Afternoon milk tea

Jar of cookies

My granddaughter

Reaching for a rose

In the garden

My little girl’s

First spring marigold

Pulling wishes

Pretty white flowers

Orange tree blossoms

Scent of marmalade

Late tangerine sky

Between white apple blossoms

Eternal beauty

Cut fragrant lilacs

We borrow our neighbor’s vase

Sweet spring country home

Spring shimmering colors

Blend of orange and lemon

Cologne scent evening

Gorgeous spring flowers

Fragrant colorful homely

Last say of April

Spring field flowers

Sakura blossoms

Transient soft pinkish petals

Swirling in the breeze

Sakura

Hope you have enjoyed my Spring collection

Thank you for reading

Scarlet Dragonfly Journal- April Haiku

Aging is not stopping me from writing. My poetry journey continues as new wrinkles unfold on my face, my neck and my hands.

Along my journey I have come across the adorable editor of Scarlet Dragonfly Journal, Kathleen Trocmet,on the internet. Inspired by her commendable work I started to submit my haiku poems to Scarlet Dragonfly Journal.

I thank her for selecting my haiku for the month of April 2022 issue.

Mom’s indoor garden

Musky fragrance fills the air

Winter narcissus
