HAIKU DEATH SONGS: It is a tradition among the haiku poets of Japan, as life approaches its conclusion, to write poems expressing their views or feelings about death. These are known as "death... More > songs." This book is a collection of haiku death songs and other poems, ancient and modern, that speak of the death experience.

I no longer see death as a frightening or final experience. It is just stepping through a door from one world into the next. It includes selections by contemporary western Buddhists such as Woody Allen, Bob Dylan, Richard Bach and Timothy Leary. It is provocative, insightful, reassuring; not at all morbid or grim. It even brings some welcome levity in places. This book is great reading for those dealing with mortality issues.< Less
