Agus, another scientist, a teacher of maths and physics, writes for us from the rural city of Tangerang, Indonesia. Agus enjoys haiku “because of its simplicity and the huge meaning behind the words.

It is so natural so you don’t have to try to find lovely words to write. Just write what you see, what you taste, what you hear, or what you smell in the daily words:” And yet, “A good haiku hides a hidden messages behind the words, makes us think to find out the connection between two images. Sometimes we need to contemplate to find out what lies behind the words.”

His haiku

almost midnight
only the koi
and cicada, too

What does this make you think of? For me,  it’s a very still summer night where the only sound is the koi coming up for breath in the pond and the chirping of the cicadas. It’s a very calming piece of work.

Thank you so much for such a beautiful piece of work. I know we will hear more from you in the future and I’m looking forward to it.
