One Push Of The Door

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku310 – One push of the door, a single step

     One push of the door, a single step
     And the corridor seems to stretch
     As far as the eye can see.

The haiku is by Takuboku Ishikawa, best remembered for his emphatic and introspective tanka: his poems were accepted by the one of the most important tanka journals of the early 20th century, “Myojo”, when he was only 16. Takuboku Ishikawa’s two major collections of tanka, “Ichiaku no Suna” (“A Handful of Sand”) and “Kanashiki Gangu” (“Sad Toys”), came out in 1910 and 1912. “Sad Toys” was published posthumously in June 1912, two months after he died of tubercolosis at the age of 26.

One Push Of The Door was written for three Flutes, three Clarinets and Vibraphone.
