'' In this Masaoka Shiki's haiku, the poet is looking out of his bedroom window at his small garden after darkness set in. Someone had just emptied a hot water bottle used to comfort Shiki who was in continual, deep seeded pain. He was obviously lying in bed, and subjectively, painted with words what he saw, with a metaphorical tinge. It appeared to him as if the hot water bottle was being emptied into the moon. ''
