Buoyantly We Go

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku314 – Buoyantly We Go

   Buoyantly we go
   Like the wind,
   Tasting water.

This haiku is by Taneda Santoka, a Japanese poet and mendicant Zen priest who specialised in free verse haiku. Santoka was a disciple of Ogiwara Seisensui (1884-1976), the founder of the free-style haiku which discarded the traditional use of the 5-7-5 structure.

Buoyantly We Go was written for Flute, Clarinet, Horn, Trombone, Violin, Viola, Cello and String Bass.
