Book Envy: Chiyo-ni

One of the disadvantages of spending the weekend with my poet friends is that I developed a long list of poetry books I just HAD TO HAVE.

Today, I ordered one of them -- Chiyo-ni: Woman Haiku Master by Patricia Donegan and Yoshie Ishibashi, ISBN 0-8048-2053-8.

I had never read Chiyo-ni before. She's a female haiku poet from 18th Century Japan, and after sitting down with the book one night after sight-seeing last weekend, it went right to the top of my wish list.

Here's a link to a sampling of her work.
