Poetry on the Street in Kharkiv, Ukraine with Iryna Shuvalova.

I don’t understand Russian (or is it Ukrainian?) but I was captivated by this video – the impassioned poet shouting her truth ignored like street noise in a busy world.

Haiku by Ryokan

Time  2:02

A great example of how ‘video’ in video poetry can add unexpected depth to words and experience.

A  contributor at the Moving Poems Forum, poet Ren Powell, explained: “I really enjoyed the hyper-awareness of my own attention span – thinking how much I enjoy watching things in nature really and how little time I give to it… then the haiku makes me laugh – while I have been enjoying the view a thief has robbed me.”
