A Japanese Haiku is a three-line poem written with the following syllabic structure:
This poetic form tends to emphasize simplicity, intensity, and the connection between nature and human life. It is typically written in the present tense about a small moment in time, and finds associations between disconnected images and sensory experiences. Though brief, a beautifully written haiku blooms with emotional directness and often offers a meaningful use of juxtaposed imagery.
But where does video making coming in? Well, cinema, like poetry, is all about showing, not telling. Both art forms are closely related in the ways they convey meaning: by weaving a story through brief, sequential images, filmmakers and poets heighten our understanding of the world around us, and allow us to access new ways of looking.

Wonderful juxtaposition of the stillness of nature with the chaos of drums. Love the sound mix and color grade here. Excellent work!
