A few of my latest books on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Don-Baird/e/B00LQSKG5O/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0

An 80's book Transcending the Void is republished and amongst them! Let me know how you like it.

Haiku Wisdom (not on this page but found through Amazon search, for some reason) is a mix of "easy access haiku," stories, and kung fu philosophy. Light and hopefully thought provoking. As the Crow Flies is a book of more challenging haiku combined with advanced kung fu thoughts and perceptions. Haiku - the Interior and Exterior of Being, is a haiku book that reaches deep into the reader's experience of life. Hopefully, each haiku triggers a great deal of feeling and thought -- and adds to the reader's awareness of the activities (comings and goings) of the Tao and all her ways. This book is my most recent haiku endeavor. It was read at Vroman's bookstore (last month). A packed audience ... haiku ... and good times filled the air! I'm still on a high from that adventure!

pipe puffs . . .
an old man adds
to the storm


—fanning spring . . .
the last seagulls
become a cloud—


over his shoulder;
soldiers come home
one by one


returning
the sound of gunfire
returning


woodpecker —
the unusual tempo
of this morning


AK-47;
the suddenness
of it all


her curves in the hands of the moon


in the space between words     worlds


the distance
between grass blades —
this one ant


powder across the pines across


longing for home I become a memory


daydreaming how quickly my mind


each rose the wind leaves behind


tsunami shore;
the child's hands washed
in blood

the rock—
thinking about rolling,
rolling



Drop by, browse, and enjoy!

Thank you.
I write haiku because they're there to be written ...

storm drain
the vertical axis
of winter

Well done on the huge success of your latest book, and of the others!  :)

warm regards,

Alan
