Rodmell Press is best known for smart books on yoga practice, anatomy and philosophy. However, the beloved IAYB sponsor has taken a different direction with their latest release, a book of 100 haiku by Mitsu Suzuki, the widow of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, founder of San Francisco Zen Center.
A White Tea Bowl: 100 Haiku from 100 Days of Life is a selection of poems written by Suzuki and released in book form to celebrate her 100th birthday (April 23, 2014). Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry characterized by a juxtaposition of imagery, a limited number of syllables (usually 17, with 5/7/6 to a line) and a reference to a season. Suzuki’s book includes poems written between 1993 and the present day, an introduction by noted Buddhist teacher, Norman Fischer, and stories about Suzuki from those who knew her at the SF Zen Center.
