    یک چتر آن که عاشق تر، خیس تر خونی مشترک داریم اما نسبتی با هم نداریم - پشه ی نفرت انگیز! با قیافه ای ابلهانه در انتظارِ عطسه ی بعدی در مشاجره آن که پیروز می شود نیز آسوده نمی خوابد عاشق و معشوق هر دو سبیل دارند - گربه ها

    به نظرم طنز آمیز نبودند. گرچه خوندنش حس خوبی داشت و بعضی‌هاش رو دوست داشتم. حتی با فکر کردن رو هایکوها هم خوندنش بیشتر از یک ساعت طول نمی‌کشه. روز به آرامی پایان می‌گیرد سگ شکم بر زمین نهاده آرام می‌گیرد (شوزن)

    همه شون هم طنزآميز نبودند، اما دلنشين و زيبا بودند. توضيحات و مقدمه هم در درك بهتر خيلى كمك كرد. (قرض از بوكتاب تهران)

    جذاب بود. بیشتر هایکوهاش خیلی سرراست بود و بعضی ها به کمی تأمل برای درک نیاز داشت

    For all of you who enjoy Haiku poetry, this is a book that is well worth a look. Containing, not just poetry, but some witty Japanese drawings too, it is all about seeing the funny side of life in a snapshot. For all of our differences across the world, diversity that makes us all fascinating and enables us to learn from one another, I have found the ability to laugh together to be one of the strongest and most delightful common denominators. Sharing a good laugh or a giggle at the absurdities of For all of you who enjoy Haiku poetry, this is a book that is well worth a look. Containing, not just poetry, but some witty Japanese drawings too, it is all about seeing the funny side of life in a snapshot. For all of our differences across the world, diversity that makes us all fascinating and enables us to learn from one another, I have found the ability to laugh together to be one of the strongest and most delightful common denominators. Sharing a good laugh or a giggle at the absurdities of life is one of the pleasures of being human and this book contributes hugely. It is a combination of traditional and contemporary poems, so spans the centuries as well as the globe, showing humour to be entertainment, a show of intelligence, or a coping mechanism during difficult times. There are loads of humourous Haiku out there, one of my favourites was the Spam-ku website, yes its all poetry about SPAM luncheon meat! Some of them are hilairious. What I like about this book is that it collects together the more traditional form of the poem, old and new, with a playful slant that we can all relate to.

    This is so beautifully written. You won't want to skip a single page and the out-loud laughter that will surely accompany your reading. This is so beautifully written. You won't want to skip a single page and the out-loud laughter that will surely accompany your reading.
