The two hundred and fifty haiku works in this poetic book meditate on the fullness of the human condition with minimalist and concise wording, utilizing the five-syllable, seven-syllable, five-syllable school, yet Becket adds his own method to the discipline to make each work as meaningful as possible. Ranging from the humorous to the heartrendingly poignant, these haikus exemplify his ongoing endeavor to simply and succinctly encourage the struggling, comfort the mournful, identify with the outcast, as well as contemplate on the more significant elements of life. This book of haikus is for the one who needs them-the one who feels abandoned and alone, the one whose mind needs relief from worry and fear, the one who seeks assurance that hope is attainable.
