Haiku Video inspired by Shiki

I really like this Haiku Video found on Vimeo that was done for a video production class. It uses a modern-style of film-making to illustrate a traditional haiku by Shiki. I like that the spider is not seen but suggested.  It looks great (except for maybe the close-up of the fly).

Asked how old she is, / She holds up the fingers of one hand; / The change of clothes. – Kobayashi Issa

Asked how old she is,

She holds up the fingers of one hand;

The change of clothes.

 

– Kobayashi Issa (Haiku, R.H. Blyth, Hokuseido Press, 1984, 2nd print paperback, p. 728)
