Haiku (This cold winter night…) by Yosa Buson

Amusing little animation by Paul Watts, who seems to have remembered what so many Western haiku-appreciators do not: that irreverence is central to the form (it was a reaction against more serious renga poetry).

    This animation so well demonstrates the LARGE CONTENT that a wee number of syllables can evoke.
