Is this the best haiku ever?

All poetry is just people using big words to describe simple things that everyone experiences. Woah, look at that tree bro it's like it's alive and bright or some gay shit.

chink symbols (which nips use) have a lot more meaning that typical latin/greek script words.

So, how does that concern me? I can't read moon runes, if I could I wouldn't be discussing English translations of anything that's Jap, but I'm stuck with the translation so the nuances of the original might as well not exist. If the translator tries to deliver the impact of the original and manages elicit a particular image followed by certain feelings, it's usually more than good enough for me.
I like it when they go the extra mile and inform you of the various meanings and nuances of the text but that's rare in haiku collections.
