Strands of the original haiku DNA have been cross-bred into many other cultures, spiritualities and languages ever since Japan opened its borders and culture to the international community.

It is our hope that the Living Haiku Anthology reflects what is being written as haiku today with no willful attempt to circumscribe future manifestations of the essential haiku DNA.

an autumn ikebana
