The Haiku Anthology ( Expanded Edition)

“Cabbage moth-the whole golf course- to itself.” Poetry that conveys in a few short lines a myriad of emotions and imagery. Haiku, originally a form of Japanese poetry has been given a modern Western twist in this small, but comprehensive anthology. “The men on both sides- have taken- my armrests”. Something for everybody, just delightful.
