Overview

Haiku is a form of poetry which developed in Japan more than 400 years ago and today is enjoyed throughout the world in many languages. The poems are usually of seventeen syllables and most often on nature themes. They are like little watercolor vignettes. This is a collection of more than 200 haiku, written over several years, in the Japanese tradition but on subjects found in Tennessee. Some are light, even funny, and others are poignant. Some merely paint a picture of nature and others throw light on something deeper, even spiritual about the nature from which they are drawn. "Haiku," it is said, actually means funny poetry, but perhaps it means positive poetry or uplifting poetry. It is meant to be all these things. Most of all, it is meant to be enjoyed, one at a time.
