it was amazing

This was such a wonderful book. I loved her introduction and the idea of haiku mind. I had never really thought of it before. This idea of writing a haiku as a cultivation of character practice. To really focus on the now. The moment, the vividness and beauty that’s in the details of every day life, This is something that is the basis of tea ceremony and I really appreciated reading how this attention and mindfulness can be found in the practice of haiku as well.

I totally disagree with the reviewer who disliked the translation of the most famous hike whoever. I think it was extremely well done and I don’t know why he thinks the use of the word doesn’t belong in haiku.

The more I loved her translation of the famous hike to buy Issa. I think it’s the best one I’ve ever seen.

A beautiful book that I will re-read it again and again!
