Just a few days ago, I got a little gifgt from life life learing about Haiku, or better still a book jewel full of these Japanese poems which, with a very specific rhyme of 17 syllables, placed so that are 5-7-5 syllables in three sentences are able to express so much with so little.
I am grateful to Jorge Palacios, the great sculptor with whom the Galería Kreisler has opened its season 15-16 with his sculptures, and to whom I will dedicate my next post, that he got me in touch with Juan Fernández-Aceytuno and thus I was able to attend the presentation of his first book of Haikus in the Museo Lázaro Galdiano a few days ago. The presentation of the book, in charge of Mónica Fernádez-Aceytuno whose sales are destined to the Foundation Jaime Alonso Abruña was very emotional and despite being crowded we had an incredible atmosphere whenever we could listen to a few of these short poems.
On the way to the presentation, distributed by the beautiful gardens of the Foundation, we were able to see some sculptures-Haikus also designed by Juan, with whom I am already working to do with these little gems of literature, sculptures so we can reach a larger number of people and thus bring the magic of words and forms together.
An exciting challenge that makes me very happy. Thank you Juan for making us and making me this gift.
