Official Launch of My Haiku Life video

April is National Poetry month.

And April 17 is International Haiku Day!

The Haiku Foundation launched a series of HaikuLife videos on its website presenting various haiku, poets, projects, and groups. You’ll find a short animation video featuring Kaeru and Kawazu, the two characters of Old Pond Comics.

In this short video, Kaeru, a young frog who wants to learn haiku, becomes the apprentice of Master Kawazu (the famous frog who jumped in Basho’s pond).  You’ll learn about the birth of Kaeru, his childhood and how he developed an interest for haiku. Check it out.

The Making of My Haiku Life video

I’m working on my Haiku Life video: a short animation film about the childhood of Kaeru the haiku apprentice from my Old Pond Comics. Check out the cute tadpole!

The final video will be unveiled on April 17 (National Haiku Day) on The Haiku Foundation website.
