the year haiku Synopsis

I wrote a haiku a day from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2000 and the result is this book the year haiku. I stayed true to the original spirit of haiku and put the primary focus on the wonder and beauty of Nature. The book has a total of 366 haiku (I wrote it during a Leap Year!). Listed below for your reading enjoyment are haiku for the first 5 days of the year 2000.
