We are all human, and our experiences, while they may be different on the surface, are very similar deep down. We all deal with happiness, sadness, euphoria, despair, love, hate, loss, victory, failure, and the whole gamut of emotions.
Poetry helps capture some of these emotions in words. One format of poetry, that originated in Japan centuries ago, captures these emotions in a more economical way than any other, creating self-contained works of beauty.
In this book, you will experience some of the greatest haiku of all time: ancient, medieval, and modern. You will celebrate the beauty of the natural world, laugh in elation at happy experiences retold, and weep gently when you identify with quiet sadness experienced with dignity and fortitude and strength.
I have tried to showcase all the haiku in this book in beautiful format posters: something so lovely deserves the best presentation possible, so that both your eyes and soul are in for a treat.
The first time you saw haiku, you could not believe that such short poems could touch the depths of your soul so effectively.
Every haiku is a gift from the mind of its creator to yours. When you read the haiku in this book, you will experience hope, happiness, pain, grief, optimism, nostalgia, and the breadth of the human experience.
Read on for a curated poetry experience unlike any other.
