    The great classic in ancient Haiku and modern Rezai Zen Haiku with interviews, which is ancient poetry is: Zen Poetry, ed. Lucien Stryk, 1977, Great Books by Cryal and Wyman, ltd, Europe; in the USA, A Penguin Book.

    As far as books go, it depends whether you want to read classic haiku, modern writers, or have a 'how to' guide on haiku writing and appreciation.

    These are some books that I recommend: https://yearinhaiku.wordpress.com/books-and-weblinks/

    A relatively recent book I haven't put on my list yet is Three Simple Lines by writer and Zen teacher, Natalie Goldberg. This is a good read about her visit to various haiku related places in Japan. Upaya Zen Center has hosted a number of haiku retreats with Natalie and others which are worth looking for in their podcast library.

    For anyone wanting to contribute here, it is good to have a look at the introductory material explaining what a haiku is and isn't:

    How to Haiku 1
    How to Haiku 2
    How to Haiku 3
    How to Haiku 4
    How to Haiku 5

    If it is okay, I am going to move this over to the Haiku section so that we can keep the conversation around for future Haikuists.

    I can recommend: “The River of Heaven: The Haiku of Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki”, by Robert Aitken.

    I have these and re-read them regularly.

    Thank you for the recommendations!

    I've been dabbling in Haiku; It's therapeutic for somebody as verbose as I am try to get to the point in a 5-7-5 syllable offering.

    Should be simple. Definitely isn't.

    Gassho,

    started a topic ARTS: Any haiku book recommendations?

    ARTS: Any haiku book recommendations?

    I'm interested in poetry and I know Haiku is related to zen to some extent, thus, I'd like to introduce to myself this type of poetry.

    Thank in advance
