This book is a refreshing collection of traditional and non-traditional haiku poetry from old and new masters. Each chapter had a different theme and a new poem to ponder. I was challenged with each page to look at poetry and the world a bit differently.I felt inspired to write more haiku and to explore poetry as a way of living rather than as simply a way of writing pretty words. I learned to stop myself and to notice when I noticed something - to start at that moment to write. Just noticing is a start.I will return to this book again and again, as I believe there is richness in its simplicity, just like the haiku.

Buy this book. Allow the roar of the world to continue without you for any reason on your list. Buy this book. haiku mind provides a fantastic springboard for those who wish to learn more about poetic forms, authors ancient to recent, views from perspectives that celebrate inclusion rather than exclusion and so much more. Buy this book. Do what I did, buy a second one and give it to someone. Buy this book. You will not regret your decision.

I read a poem each night after dinner. It was a wonderful way to ease into the evening. Very calming. It added a sense of beauty to my day.

this is an American style of haiku. Basho's traditional haiku is available for those who want the traditional Japanese style. I purchased this for poetry month. It is one of those books I will enjoy reading and re- reading.
