How adorable…

Live & Learn

A bitter morning,
sparrows sitting together
without any necks.

James William Hackett (84, b. Seattle), is an American poet and philosopher most noted for his work with haiku in English.  (Noted he was born during the year the Great Depression started.)  The Zen poet and pioneer in creating haiku poetry in English began writing haiku in the 1950s following a near fatal accident. Spiritually reborn, he acquired a profound reverence for life, and now writes haiku with a focus upon Greater Nature and life’s Eternal Now. He is a reclusive poet dedicated to a spiritual way of haiku in English.  Hackett’s poetry is known, translated, and anthologized world wide. Hackett’s Haiku Poetry: v. 1 can be found at Amazon at this link.
