Louis Cuneo was one of the first proponents of what has come to be known as the haiku movement. This 1975 book (Celestial Arts) was a combination primer and collection, discussing how he arrived at his understanding of haiku, and how he wrote, making it a somewhat rare document of process.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Through the dirty window the sun brightens the room.The tide takes river towards the ocean . . . also, carrying wet paper.Live your own life! Get used to being a cat . . . not a dog!
