Program note

In English

Sick on my
only my dreams
will wander
these desolate

On a journey,
my dream goes
over withered

The work is inspired by the haiku poem above by the old master Basho, here reproduced in two versions.

It is his last poetry - his death poem.
The mood is somewhere between dream and reality, the living and the dead where consciousness wanders by unknown paths.

Martin Lohse 2012

In Danish

Jeg rejser
Stille over
visne marker
mine drømme

Værket er inspireret af ovenstående haiku-digt af den gamle mester Basho, her gengivet fra Hans-Jørgen Nielsen: HAIKU – en introduktion og 150 gendigtninger.

Det er hans sidste digt - hans dødsdigt.
Stemningen er et sted imellem drøm og virkelighed, det levende og det døde hvor bevidstheden vandrer af ukendte stier.

Martin Lohse 2012
