These skillfully crafted haiku are the product of sensitive observation of nature and of human relationships. Each poem is the distillation of a moment of sharp perception and is presented in a way that is suggestive rather than telling. On the whole, this collection reads as a meditation on what is most meaningful in life. Many of these poems will linger in your mind long after you close the pages of this book.
