Moser presents 228 haiku written over several decades and derived from journeys in locales ranging from Montana and the West Coast to Alaska, Mexico, and Japan.

A trip to Japan in 1982 provided the opportunity to study the works of the great Japanese haiku poets--Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki. Conversations with the renowned fisheries biologist, Dr. Kouichi Kawaguchi, led to a deep appreciation of these revered poets and the process of writing haiku. Although Japanese haiku may not be fully perceived without a knowledge of the language, attempts to write haiku in English can be rewarding.

The format of three lines of five-seven-five syllables, inspired by momentary experiences in nature, may provide insights of a kind expressed in Wordsworths and Dickinsons nature poems. In these, as in haiku, the natural world resonates with the inner life of the poet.
