Overview

Haiku Moment is the most comprehensive volume of contemporary North American haiku written in English.

It contains over 800 haiku by 185 poets. Most of the haiku in this collection are nature poems, some of these merely nature sketches overlaid with recognizable human emotion. In general, these haiku are meant to reflect either the style of the Basho School of haiku with its emphasis on the preservation of temporal loneliness and emotional objectivity or the haiku of Issa with their joyful evocations of the liveliness and empathic resonance found in the natural world.

Noteworthy haiku poets include:

  • Charles Dickens
  • Patricia Donegan
  • Adele Kenny
  • Matthew Louviere
  • Bruce Ross
  • Miriam Sagan
  • Ruth Yarrow
