The Beach Waves Break Up The Plovers

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku293

     Each time they roll in
     the beach waves break up
     the plovers

This haiku was by Shiba Sonome (1664–1726). She was a haiku poet and disciple of Matsuo Bashô. Reichhold wrote about her: “One sees that most of these women gained access to the inner circle around Basho by being related either by marriage or blood to one of his disciples. It is possible that Shiba Sonome was one of the few to be accepted as a poet on her own.”

The Beach Waves Break Up The Plovers was inspired by Margo Kõlar’s “Ammuste aegade laulud.”

The Beach Waves Break Up The Plovers was written for Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, solo Violin, solo Viola, solo Cello, Violin, Viola, Cello, and String Bass.
