New American Book of ‘Blue Collar’ Haiku Rooted in Works of Japanese Master

Greg Paullus

ESTES PARK, Colo. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — ‘Rocky Mountain Blue Collar Haiku’ (ISBN: 9781449918378) targets a more extensive audience than conventional books of haiku poetry. Containing literary quality poems, poet Greg Paullus follows the spirit of Kobayashi ISSA (1763-1828), one of the four great Japanese masters, but the first who was also a common man. Haiku are short, typically three-line poems of 17 syllables or less (5-7-5).
