Read full description of the books:
Poetry. "A student looking at modern haiku for the first time often asks, 'Why does haiku look like it does today? What happened to the rules?' A simple answer, to quote Zen teacher Joko Beck, is: 'A good practice is always undermining itself.' Continent to continent, culture to culture, language to language, haiku has made itself new. During this transformation, practitioners parted ways with rules that worked best for Japanese speakers. New languages, geographies, climates, and cultural environments triggered new approaches. The essential core ideas of Basho's time are with us, though. Keep it brief, let it jump, follow the natural world through its seasons, but do not forget the seasons of the heart"--from the Afterword.

Read information about the authorJohn Brandi, poet, painter, essayist and haiku writer, has resided in New Mexico for 35 years. Over the decades his poems and essays have celebrated his rambles into the unexpected crannies of the high desert, as well as presenting his conversations with bizarre loners, spunky elders, and eccentric renegades.
As a poet, Brandi owes much to the Beat tradition, and to poets as diverse as Federico García Lorca, Pablo Neruda, and Matsuo Basho. Brandi's writing and visual art is specifically informed by his world journeys. His dozens of publications include poetry, travel essays, limited-edition letterpress books, hand-colored broadsides, and modern American haiku. He has lectured at the Palace of the Governors Museum, Santa Fe, at Punjabi University, India, and has been a guide and lecturer for university students studying in Bali, Java, and Mexico. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Poetry and four Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry teaching awards.
