The ancient Japanese verse form of haiku, which is used for the expression of Zen, consists of three lines and 17 syllables - the length of a human breath. This anthology includes selections from the works of authors from the classical Matsuo Basho to contemporary poets Koko Kato and Keiko Ito. The book is part of a three-volume series which also includes "Koans: the Lessons of Zen" and "Sayings: the Wisdom of Zen."
