(From the publisher):
In these brief, non-rhyming poems, the small marvels of nature are seen pure and new as a child sees them. The joys of a spring rain, the silence of deep pools, the watchfulness of small animals - all are conveyed in these verses as delicately and intimately as a whisper. The accompanying pictures, chosen from the works of Japanese masters, heighten the beauty and simplicity of the haiku.

- "Except for Sesshu, the artists did not have short, simple names like those the poets made up for themselves. That is why they aren't listed. They wouldn't mind. They were mostly Zen Buddhists and liked to forget themselves." - Harry Behn
