the poet’s glance

Haiku is an open-eyed engagement with the word and with the world.  It is not so much what paints itself on the retina as what resonates – through one or more of the senses – with the human spirit.  Haiku moments, in all their purity, surprise us when – and only when – we have achieved passive, non-striving awareness.
