For centuries, the Japanese haiku has been one of the world's most dazzling poetic forms. In just three short lines, it captures the sublime beauty of nature--the croak of the bullfrog, the buzzing of the dragonfly, the shriek of the cicada or the scream of the cormorant. Inspired by ancient Zen teachings and timeless Jewish noodling, this masterful work is filled with the insights that will make you exclaim "Ah!" or at least "Oy!" Whether you are Jewish or simply enjoy a good kosher haiku, these chai-kus (so called because of their high chutzpah content) are certain to amuse.
