Haiku is celebrated as a concise form of poetry able to convey a singular moment with great clarity. While haiku most often depicts the natural world, when focused on the elements of love and sensuality, haiku can be a powerful vehicle for evoking the universal experience of love.

In this elegant anthology, love is explored through beautiful images that evoke a range of feelings—from the longing of a lover to the passion of a romantic relationship. Written by contemporary Japanese poets as well as by haiku masters such as Basho, Buson, and Issa, these poems share not only the haiku poets’ vision for love, but their vision of the poignant moments that express it.

Baker & Taylor
A treasury of romantic and sensuous haiku includes translations of the works of masters Basho, Buson and Issa as well as a selection of contemporary Japanese poets, in a volume that is complemented by evocative art that blends traditional and western-world motifs.
