Tomas Tranströmer's "a wild boar plays the organ" - Haiku - November 28, 2014

under the snowdrifts -
the tinkling of tiny bells
children's bright laughter

© G.s.k. '14

then the leaves whispered:
a wild boar plays the organ.
and the bells all rang

© Tomas Tranströmer

This poem by Tomas Tranströmer reminded me of one of my favorite Christmas books by Terry Pratchett ... "The Hogfather". 


Linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special


  1. I love the link between children and I am watching this movie you attached...thanks for sharing this, I am going to share it with my grandson at Christmas:)

  2. Glad you're enjoying the film and I'm happy you'll be sharing it with your Grandson, I think I'll put it on next week when we decorate the tree wit my son. ... it's in two parts btw and was produced by the BBC, I do so love their programs ... really great! I'm also liked the haiku it just jumped on the keyboard after reading his haku! ...

  3. Wonderful.. using the bells works so well

  4. So sweet! :D
    And -- how neat that the muses gifted this without a fight, too!

    1. Thanks heavens ... it's been a struggle lately!

  5. Ah, who knows what you'll find under a snowdrift? Delightful!


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
