Kenji sat down, slightly embarrassed. He hated school, he hated being confined or being made to do something.... freedom was all he truly wanted. It was the same everyday, he was often late and punished by Hama-Sensei for it too, he knew that this time he would be punished too unless he paid attention.

Looking to the blackboard in front if him, he firstly noticed the old chalk stains in the left hand corner and began staring at them to figure our what they might say...

Procrastinate nothing but book

Procrastinate night and black

Procrastinate now and brake

None of his attempts at making sense of the old stains came to anything. In fact, he was sure he was just seeing things to fill time before the end of lesson.

Look at the board Kenji He thought to himself before idly scanning the Haiku that was written in Kanji.

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.
- Natsume Soseki


What did it even mean, was there really any sense to be of something so short he wondered. It was often Kenji's downfall when it came to words that he never read between the lines. Rather he saw everything for what is was, he saw everything as it seemed on the outside before considering what was on the inside. Making him rather recluse and lonely.
When Kenji finally decided no sense could be make of the Haiku he put his pen to paper, while Hama questioned other students about the 'Deeper meaning'.
He began to draw a tree, with a pile of leaves at the bottom with a tiger lying among them...

' Often you have to look for the deeper meaning of a Haiku, there are so many... and no answer is wrong because it is all about how it makes you feel. What does it make you think...... Hima?!'

The loud Echo of 'Hima' rung into Kenji's ears, causing him to jump up and knock his notepad under Yoshino's desk. He had no idea what he had been asked, he looked around sheepishly to see if any of the answers jumped out at him. Nothing.

Hama pointed to the door, Kenji picked up his bag and left the class. He headed back outside into the large field where students often had their lunch and hangout... Kenji sat under and old withering tree.... He totally forgot about his notepad.
