Torii Haiku, a book of haiku by David Rosen, is our Book of the Week. I cannot do better in introducing it than cite Johnny Baranski’s Foreword to the book.
Gates. There are gates to keep us out and gates to keep us in. Garden gates, prison gates, gates to sacred places. There are healing gates like the Fountain Gate in old Jerusalem near the pool of Siloam whose waters cured the blind man in John’s Gospel (7:9). Come walk with me now through a gate to healing moments, the sacred moments that are David Rosen’s haiku.
