Raindrops of Haiku is a collection of original poems with commentaries about their inspiration and structure.

The comments touch on sources of inspiration, their larger context and underlying structure. A brief introduction includes a discussion of the original Japanese form, linguistic and artistic considerations for English haiku, and a recommendation on how to approach the genre.

Haiku fuse simplicity, truth and beauty; and the poems and illustrations present a personal expression of appreciation of this unique art form.
