I think haikus should be sampled, savoured and reflected upon one by one - and not in chunks as I did, as it tends to get repetitive that way. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this dip into the world of haikus and particularly liked those by Issa. The artwork was beautiful, too.

Next off to hippolein, who also expressed his interest in this book when hakkalina organised her draw.

necoconeco got this book during the meeting in Helsinki, but with teddyke in hospital we forgot to journal it.
But it's safely here and as it's so big it will take some time to get through it...
