Throat singing


Dear friends and followers,

It has been a while that I posted here at my personal WP weblog, but I hope to be more often here at WP to share my haiku (or other Japanese poetry form). This time, as you can see at the title of this post, it’s about “throat singing”. It’s a wonderful way of singing and it’s mostly seen/heard in Central Asia. As you (maybe) know I have a daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai at blogspot. This month all the prompts I use are distilled from the scene of the Altai Mountains, in Central Asia, home of the Tuvan-people. This month at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (CDHK) we are on the way of the shamans and are discovering the world of the shaman.
Today Hamish Managua Gunn (a.k.a. Pirate) is my guest-host at CDHK and he shared a wonderful blog about throat singing really awesome.

Here is an example of throat singing:

Isn’t it beautiful? It inspired me to create a haiku in which the words without sound, as in throat singing are like a symphony:

rustling of leaves
sound of the spring rain
one with nature

one with nature
listen to the cry of an eagle
the rustling leaves
