Festival Haiku - Boryeong Mud Festival, South Korea


Boryeong Mud Festival
in the mud
childhood

Boryeong Mud Festival
one colour
one world

Boryeong Mud Festival
murky too the history
of korea


Boryeong Mud Festival
all the men carved
in grey

Boryeong Mud Festival
the group photo
sparkling teeth

Boryeong Mud Festival
saying we are mud anyway
he laughs and plunges in

Boryeong Mud Festival
on his head
a grey pagoda

Boryeong Mud Festival
the sea too
a shade of grey

Boryeong Mud Festival
travelling miles to
get ourselves dirtied

Boryeong Mud Festival
travelling back to
childhood again

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
