Local notes

For David H. Rosen and Joel Weishaus, haiku represents a healing union of intuition and sensation, past and present, self and other, ordinary and extraordinary, and current and ancient memories. In this simple, compelling book, the authors, who have lived and traveled extensively in Japan, offer 172 haikus that resonate with Zen Buddhist, Shinto, and Taoist insights. Underscoring the philosophy "moments, moments, that is life," the book takes readers beyond the ego into a healing realm of simple, archetypal words. This book is a haibun of psyche, an exchange of poetry and prose between two old friends who set out to accomplish a soulful journey together.
