Mountain Water School of Haiku.
  This haiku school is led by David Coomler.  This school

Zen/Ch'an and Taoist-based poetry of old Japan and China."  Hokku-Inn is the public forum, a
general posting site for haiku and discussion among intermediate level school members.  
Mountain-Water is for deeper discussion of haiku-related matters among
selected long-time and committed students.  Quiet-Pond is for selected advanced students
who might from time to time prefer student-teacher interaction only.
