Haiku represent a beautiful combination of presence and transcendence, of wonder and realization, through the crystallization of an instant in time. With two hundred sixty haiku and haiku-inspired poems, Swaying Branches, Rustling Leaves offers insightful observations of everyday and uncommon moments presented with humor, joy, and clarity. Ranging from the traditional to flexible verse, this book explores the simple marvel and delight present in the world in and around us if we but look. Swaying Branches, Rustling Leaves is for those who wish to experience the heart of each instant that the mind may open and become still.show more
