Haiku Moment is the most comprehensive volume of contemporary North American haiku written in English. It contains over 800 haiku by 185 poets.

This is an excellent collection of contemporary English-language haiku. There are many beautiful images here. This book is a must for the library of anyone who is interested in this genre. ( )

his is a healthy collection of English-language haiku. I'd say it's much less innovative and much less exciting than The Haiku Anthology. The poems are almost all on nature themes, without a lot of further depth or insight. Still, for a traditional view of what haiku should be, this collection represents it well and presents poems which are direct and clear. Furthermore, having over 800 poems and 185 poets, nothing beats an anthology for giving you a broad sense of what various writers are doing and what can be done with haiku. ( )
