“Briefly We Glisten” & “There Is No Word For Goodbye”

Basho’s “Briefly We Glisten” is a Japanese haiku—a very short poetic form consisting of lines of 5-7-5 syllables. Some of the topics that pertain to this vein of poetry is the depiction of nature through the careful arrangement of words, Buddhist moral advice against mental “fixity,” and the fleeting, temporary condition of all Things.

Mary TallMountain’s “There is No Word for Goodbye” both ends and doesn’t end our course, since it deals with the impossibility of every full communicating a farewell. On this discussion board, we’ll be discussing various different cultural gestures and sayings associated with the act of making a closing statement.
