New Acropolis hosted an interactive talk at the Colaba Centre titled “Wisdom in Simplicity: Exploring Japanese Haiku Poetry”.
It was proposed that Haiku poetry, like many classical art forms, invites the author to see and live with more depth and sensitivity. Haiku is characterized by brevity, respect for nature, and a keen sense of the present moment, and it becomes a medium through which the poet practices the need to let go of the un-essential, in order to grasp the essential.
The talk was followed by participants trying their own hand at writing their own verses.
