"Raku Teapot Haiku"
Haiku Book with Companion CD

[Order Information Below]

"Raku Teapot Haiku," the first of what we hope will be many such publications by Raku Teapot poets, was published by Raku Teapot Press in 2003.

From the back cover: "The twenty-four haiku poets whose work appears in this book are members of the Raku Teapot online haiku list, which was the inspiration for the collection. The 143 poems were selected and recorded by the poets, producing a companion compact disc that displays a rich and charming variety of tones, timbres, and musical cadences in many different accents and ranges of vocal expression. Readers will find old favorites here, and will discover new work as well. Hearing each poet's voice makes this outstanding collection come alive."

Owner and co-founder of the Raku Teapot online haiku forum, Zolo, writes, "The 143 poems appearing in this book represent the gift and the love of haiku, as well as the cooperation and creativity, the profundity and humor, the artistic vision, and the poetic insights of the participating members of Raku Teapot. I believe you will find here a marvelous achievement and a unique collection of depth and beauty."
