Ever watched a haiku?

Well, this is new to me. Not a translation. But the distinct expression of the poetry in sign language.

You can watch some here and here.

Even though I have no idea of what's being "said", the movements are lovely.

At this site, you can see how it would be done, sort of. Paper and ink isn't hands and space:

A tree standing still
Mist turns to leaves turn to fall
Leaves falling to purple


RH: TREE______________________________PURPLE
LH:_______MIST LEAF LEAF-SHRINK FALL_________



Thanks to poet Deb Kolodji for the links.
