A haiku is a form of codified poetry that appeared in Japan during the second half of the seventeenth century. It consists of a very short text, usually three lines, describing an image, a landscape, an emotion, a feeling...
French magician Vincent Hedan had created a wonderfull mentalism effect using a notebook of haiku. A spectator chooses freely a haiku, and the magician is able to draw instantaneously what it represents.
To say it simple, it is a very effective book-test effect. But in fact it is a lot more than that. It creates a moment of pure emotion, a moment of refinement and of elegance...

Alex asks: I know the Japanese is printed beside the English on each Haiku. I will be performing this at Japan Society NYC and I need to know if the Japanese matches the English perfectly.
