An Indian poet, Ms. Kala Ramesh (Pune) sent me one of her newest and beautiful haiku,
expressing through her past memory.
Responding to her request, here is its pictograph.
The original English haiku by Kala Ramesh:
the ocean in a raindrop inside my womb a heart
Published in Modern Haiku Autumn
This one-line haiku embodies Hindu 'Advaitic' principle of 'oneness,' she says.
There are organ names in this haiku, but I simplified them in the pictograph,
avoiding logical expressions, rather to focus on her feeling.
The Japanese translation:
The symbols in the pictograph:
nature, love/compassion, rain, ocean, wave, I/me, torso,
vessel/container, life, thought/heart (the vessel in the torso holds another life; so you can know it's the womb)
About the haiku author, Kala Ramesh:
She is excited about introducing haiku and its genres as a 4 month course study at SSLA, a reputed college in Pune. A first for India!
