Cafe haiku: book and website

Here's a book to put you in a mellow mood: Cafe Haiku, by Zenbu Nometa (text) and Jeffrey Goldsmith (photographer). It's a collection of haiku mostly having to do with coffee, coffee houses, and related themes. (There's a tie-in website here.)

I really liked this haiku from the book:

Enjoy this moment.

No matter how still we sit,

time passes quickly.

Just substitute "green tea" where you see "coffee" or "espresso" in the book!
