Here are gathered, within Zen threads, twelve dozen haiku of classic inspiration in homage to a tradition ranging from Basho to Santoka. However, haiku, as poetry, as Zen, are alive so don´t be surprised to find cars and plastic amidst flowers and cuckoos or a, sometimes dark, sense of humour twisting nature contemplation.

It covers the movement of people from Africa, across Asia and down through the Pacific, tracing their route by demonstrating striking similarities of language and culture.
