A message from David G. Lanoue:
Dear Haiku Friends,
This May will mark the 10th year anniversary of my Haiku of Kobayashi Issa website. As part of a month-long celebration, I'd like to post your messages to Issa. These can be in the form of short notes addressed to Issa, telling him what he means to you--and, if you feel inspired, a haiku on any topic.
Along with these messages and haiku, I'm planning some other special surprises for my website in May--so be sure to stop by!
I appreciate your participation. Thanks!
David G. Lanoue

Jetted a review link off, a mystery novel by acclaimed writer Andrew Vachss. It's a decent hard-boiled novel that dances around haiku principles. It's rare to find a mainstream novel that deals with haiku let alone one that does so with respect and competency.
