haiku in English. Really? - by Michael Claxton

I've been helping a friend of mine with publishing his series of poetry books.

As is says on Amazon: "A collection of poetry in the style of Japanese haiku and tanka written over the last twenty years by Michael Claxton, a long-time resident of Tokyo and former chairman of the Swedish/Japanese Society. Real haiku and tanka should be written in Japanese but many foreigners do their best in their own languages with varying results - from the dire to the entertaining. I hope this collection tends towards the latter. What do you think?"
