Etegami (as I see it) and Haiga are two of the many Haiku and Related Forms in the field of poetry. In this case this postcard may also be considered Haiga.

Etegami is the Japanese Folk Art of writing and drawing (with or without color) originally intended to be sent between friends via the postal service—often as a postcard. 

Haiga is image which includes haiku as part of the image—image and haiku as one work.
