A video Haiku remembers a moment in time through the many elements of film; writing, sound, and visions.

“The Taste of Rain" by Jack Kerouac 

The taste
Of rain
-Why kneel?

Jack Kerouac didn't submit to the drilled 5,7,5 Haiku rule taught by western teaching. What he suggests for the western haiku is to "simply say a lot in three short lines in any western language. Above all, a Haiku must be very simple and free of all poetic trickery and make a little picture and yet be as airy and graceful as a Vivaldi Pastorella."
