our basket packed
for blossom viewing
paul m. - U.S.A.
Since this haiku emphasizes Rapture
using a capital letter, the EarthLan translation
also uses a font-size trick: gradually enlarging
happy symbols to visually express approaching
Rapture. EarthLan sometimes allows a
visual expression for a phrase instead of using
the grammar. Especially for haiku, this can add
more fun, can’t it?
In this pictograph, I tried to put some concrete
contents in the basket; no such things are in
the original haiku, but each reader can imagine
what might be packed into the basket. These are
what I imagined.
