Haiku by Jack Kerouac (USA). Artwork by myself. Jack was a "Beat" poet and writer, and he wrote many haiku, too. It is not common that a major figure in the main stream literature write haiku. Or maybe I am misinformed and there are actually many who writes haiku, there is in fact someone like the guy who received the Nobel Prise this year. Anyway, I would like to see more people in the main stream start writing haiku so the haiku itself will be an integral part of world literature.
