EC Chief Pens Haiku during Talks.
"The night has fallen/The bare branches can be seen/Even more lonely," he tweeted bleakly on Monday, during a meeting of European finance ministers and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on a Greek bailout.
He called the haiku "Autumn end november."
The European Council president has long been known for his love of the Japanese style, comprised of three-line poems of five, seven and five syllables, respectively.
"I write haiku in the evening, just before sleeping, and I wake up with the poem of the day before," he told the BBC in 2010. "In my subconscious, lots of things are working."
The politician published a book of haikus in 2010, and many feature prominently on his website. (Cihan/Ria Novosti)
