This volume collects over 150 haiku, roughly arranged by seasons and degrees to which they represent traditional forms. It does not restrict itself to the conventional 5-7-5 syllabic form (although many do follow that guideline) but instead concentrates on communicating image, emotion, and imagination. It is intended as both a sampling and an impetus for readers to try out their own poetic skills.
