Synopsis

This book gathers together a wide cross section of haiku with a selection of the diaries of the wandering Japanese poet Santoka (1882-1940). Santoka lived his life in the Zen hermit poetic tradition of Japan that includes Matsuo Basho, Ryokan, and Saigyo Hoshi. The open road was to become both his home and monastery. As he said, "Days I don't enjoy: Any day I don't walk, drink sake, and compose haiku".

Santoka lived his life in the long zen hermit wandering poetic tradition of Japan that includes Basho, Ryokan and Saigyo. His zen practice was that of solitary walking and begging. The open road was to become both his home and monastery. As he said " Days I don't enjoy: Any day I don't walk, drink sake, and compose haiku". John Stevens is the author or translator of over twenty books on Buddhism, Zen, Aikido, and Asian culture. He has practiced and taught Aikido all over the world. His books include Lotus Moon: Poems of Rengetsu and Wild Ways: Poems of Ikkyu.
