Awarded Best Haibun book by the Haiku Society of America in 2008, this expanded second edition offers sixty haibun. A haibun links brief, imagistic and poetic prose with one or more haiku. Traced to Basho’s 17th century travel writings, these English-language haibun involve concrete stories (small events) where the everyday becomes remarkable. Come join the author in reliving these epiphanies.
