Nothing expresses love better than poetry, and no poetry does it better than haiku. A whole world of passion can be contained in those three short lines. This colour-illustrated treasury contains some of the most thrilling and sensuous haiku ever composed - beginning with works by the form's original masters, Basho, Buson, and Issa and going all the way to contemporary Japanese haiku poets, many of whom are translated here in English for the first time. The book features full-colour reproductions throughout of the evocative paintings of the artist Kamisaka Sekka (1866-1942), which blend traditional motifs with Western ones. This lovely volume is the perfect gift for one lover to give another - you don't even need to be a poetry lover. Even people who don't like poetry, like haiku. The irises - I break off a stem/and go to my love - Kiyoko Uda.

"Romantic haiku have existed across the centuries and this volume features a poignant selection of them."--Shambhala Sun "This is a collection for people who love the simplicity of haiku and love that poetic feeling of love."--San Francisco Book Review
