The ancient, abstract, highly disciplined form of Japanese poetry known as haiku is the last thing you might think would appeal to hard-rock-loving teen-agers. The esoteric poetry form requires the writer to convey a single vivid image in one simple sentence of exactly 17 syllables. That is not the only restriction, however; the syllables must be arranged in three unrhymed lines--the first line with five syllables, the second line with seven, and on the third line, five again.

Painters, wood sculptors, fabric designers, stained-glass workers, potters--they're all available thanks to a new tour company called, naturally enough, Maui Art Tours. The idea is to get patrons and artists together, to make the artists seem less elusive. And, of course, the goal is to sell art.

In the first place, only two of the compositions, at best, could claim particular distinction.
