Karma – Haikus & Interludes

My compositions created in 2020 – 2021

A “Project” about our Life, about magical Moments, about Youth and Old Age,
and things between Them.

Thanks to Kristóf Melecsky ( spoken word).




The mind of the sage, being in repose, 
becomes the mirror of the Universe, 
a reflection of all creation.

Zhuang Zhou, c 4th century B.C. 




The snow of yesterday
That fell like cherry blossoms
Is water once again

Gozan Koshigaya (1717 – 1788)


Face of the spring moon
about twelve years old,
I’d say.

Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)



1st Interlude




What a strange thing
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms

Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)




2nd Interlude






Commons summertime
A torrential, gold rain meets
Under the vulcan

Takahama Kyoshi 1874 – 1959



3th Interlude “For piano & Prepared Piano”



Summer night
even the stars
are whispering to each other.

Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)



The short summer night.
The dream and real
Are same things.

Takahama Kyoshi 1874 – 1959



4th Interlude “Motifs & Moods”



Along this road
Goes no one,
This autumn eve

Matsuo Basho (1644 – 1694)



Winter solitude
in a world of one color
the sound of wind.

Matsuo Basho (1644 – 1694)




The very last Postludium
