  1. An armful of thanks to you, Sasa, and to Robert D. Wilson, for the time, energy, and patience each of you give to this invaluable gift of poetry to the Japanese people at this time, and for years to come. This is truly a gift for the ages. I am honored to find my work included with poets who know what poetry does, for the living and the dead. Light the light. Thank you.

  3. A great work for the cause of humanity! My special thanks to you Sasa, and Mr. Robert D. Wilson whom I consider the torch bearer of the classical haiku. The prayer of all poets will go in the long way soothing the agony of our Japanese brothers and sisters.

    warm touch—
    the stone melts
    with grief
