The Sound of Water PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Sound of Water free pdf Haiku may be the most popular and widely recognizable poetic form in the world. In just three lines a great haiku presents a crystalline moment of image, emotion, and awarenes. Elements of compassion, silence, and a sense of temporality often combine to reveal a quality of mystery. Just as often, haiku may bring a startling insight into the ordinary, or a flash of humour. Collected here are over two hundred of the best haiku of Japanese literature-- written from the seventeenth century to the early twentieth century by the great masters.
