    The book is divided into six sections; “Intro”, “The Art of Haiku,” and each season, spring, summer, winter, autumn (accompanied by their respective Haiku). The first two sections of the book were informational and gave a brief background of haiku, while also explaining how to properly craft a haiku.

    Impulse buy some years ago--at least 10 or 15--reread it again last night and today. This is a lovely little hardcover introductory book with selected Haiku. First reading: only one or two Haiku stood out as being worthy of remembering. Last night: found four Today: found eight. The meaning and significance of these little poems increase with each reading. Here are two of my favorites: Skylark Sings all day And day not long enough. --Basho Cofined within doors A priest is warming himslef Burning a Buddha s Impulse buy some years ago--at least 10 or 15--reread it again last night and today.
