I don't think his poems are strictly haiku. I always understood haiku to be three line poems with the syllable count: 5,7,5. Some of the japanese ones, by e.g. Basho and Issa are gorgeous just capturing the emotion of a single moment.
Yeah, I agree that some are good...although they do lack the 5,7,5, structure of an actual haiku....He calls them Haiku///not me. Mary
