Writes Professor David Lanoue, translator, author, poet, and President of the Haiku Society of America:

"Robert D. Wilson is a master wordsmith whose knowledge of haiku tradition runs deep. His one-breath poems in this book contain enough echoes of Basho, Buson, Issa and others to attest to his deep and comprehensive understanding."

Writes Professor David Landis Barnhill, translator, author, and authority on Matsuo Basho:

"For Wilson, haiku is not just about opening new worlds, including the imaginary. Indeed, one way to characterize a successful haiku is that it is an opening, and it can serve that function in many different ways, as Wilson's poems show.

Perhaps the most important time of reading haiku as rich as Wilson's is when you stop reading, when the haiku reverberate in an undecipherable way."

States Translator, author, poet, editor, and Co-owner of Simply Haiku, Sasa Vazic of Serbia:

"Read this book. Come to a conclusion about the kind of man Robert D. Wilson is, what he seeks, what he's lost, why he's a shadow man, as I sometimes call him, what the dragon is doing to him, and what he's doing to the dragon, about his nightmares and realities, his tender and open heart, ready to give without seeking anything in return. Wilson's new book of poems, stories and artwork he's constantly writing, living, painting with illusions and disillusions, day and night, the is and isn't, the yes that's no, the seen and the hidden . . . thoughts haunting him, transformed into words and images that won't depict the depth of the sky and ocean, the power of the dragon, the samurai . . . like his mind, an abyss without walls."
