Are there any recorder instances of magic being performed to haiku?

YEARS ago- I did an Origami show where I recited a lot of limmerics, poems and haiku- while doing orignami and paper magic woven throughout.

Shadowgraphy with hexaflexgrams would go well with haiku. Flute, not recorder.

I think he means "recorded instances."

Haiku to magic
some would like to do real well
but I miss the point

There once was a spade named jack
his favorite color was black
but with a queen on his bed
she turned him all red
and now we can't change him back

haikus and magic
it is hard to do at first
limericks more so

Sorry, too many beats in final line: should simply read:

I would think that, with such a short item as Haiku, it should be used at the conclusion, to provide the "lesson" re-inforced by the outcome.

The seed in my hand
As summer time see growing
The Cherries taste sweet.

For a transformation effect perhaps.

Kay, I agree I think with haiku the magic at the end as reinforcement is the best path. Let the words set up the unexpected, but let the visual stand alone in such a short piece.

See Haiku by Vincent Hedan.

I wrote this Haiku poem, inspired by a Hokusai print I saw in one of Samuel Randlett's origami books (_The Art of Origami_ I think):

Paper folded bird
By origami master made
Flaps it wings and flies.

There have been a few ideas, I think, of how to fold a flapping bird and then transform it to a dove. There was one method, I think, in the _TOPS Treasury of Dove Magic_.

The problem with haiku as patter is that the three short lines limit the time in which a magic effect can be presented.

I wrote a haiku poem for performing the coin squeeze. I performed it at a SAM meeting. Nobody was impressed.
