Haiku: to enter the fullness of here-and-now

The paper will present one of the peculiarities of the Eastern worldview, which is expressed in haiku, namely the combination of a sense of fullness of the moment and its transitivity. We will look for the roots of this vision in the philosophy of Daoism, and in particular in the understanding of the achievement of the pivot of dao or the spring of emptiness at the core of every process from where any transformations are possible.
