The essence of 'wordplay' in haikai is often overlooked. This skill can transform an ordinarily simple poem into an extraordinarily great haiku. As Basho quotes, "Real poetry is to lead a beautiful life. To live poetry is better than to write it." So, for this month, I have tried to explore those haiku which strive to live poetry in terms of imagery, specificity and masterful blending, exhibiting the utmost precision in wordplay. To describe the world in a fistful of words is a difficult art. I hope all of you will enjoy reading these selections which uphold one of the most important aspects of haiku writing — brevity.


Thank you all.
