this is a poem from matsuo bashô. haiku is a poem that complies with a three verses structure (of 5, 7, 5 syllables) which differs from school to school and from the point of view purely rethorical, haiku is divided into two separate parts by a key-word: kireji. one gives the general condition and the ubiquity of time and space of
the poem (autumn or spring, a tree or a rock...); the other, explosive, must be composed by an active element. one is descriptive and almost enunciative; the other is unexpected. the poetic perception arises from the collision of both.
