Haiku as an art and genre of poetry was developed by Basho, a student of martial training and dharma. This course examines our life and our self in relation to our natural world and the moment. Haiku is a means of capturing the changing nature of ourselves and life. It is a study of all elements: self, life, and time combine to form Haiku.
