Haiku in Brooklyn, by Jennifer Needleman

If I had to choose one it would be Hosai’s butterfly’s shadow, which begins at 6:32. Others I love include: the first two; Buson at 15:50; and Bashō’s autumnal sun. – word pond

Hat tip to Brooklyn’s own noted haiku poet, Tyrone McDonald, for sharing “Haiku in Brooklyn”.
