Haiku are word paintings that pilot the reader beyond the image into a sacred realm. For a poem complete in just a few words, resonance becomes the keynote. In Sanskrit, the primordial sound in the cosmos is known as naad and its resonance as anunaad. According to ancient Indian texts, an instrument, including the human body, vibrates only to this timeless sound. The 746 haiku in this volume come from 26 countries. They resonate, each in a unique way – just for you!
