My response is in the form of haiga and haibun. Two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry.
The words short night are a kigo (which means a season word or words) for summer.
- Haibun as I see it is prose or poetry (other than haiku) plus one or more haiku.
- Haiga as I see it is image which includes haiku as part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
