The American poet Patricia Donegan (b. 1945) is quite well known in haiku circles, both for her own poems, and for her writings about haiku. Besides her own collections, she has issued one guide on creating haiku for children (or even interested adults). She has also studied meditation in the context of Tibetan Buddhism, which colors much of her thought in the present volume.
