I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

These poems are works in progress and may be updated without notice. Nevertheless copyright applies to all writings here and all photos (which are either my own or used with permission). Thank you for your comments. I read and appreciate them all, and reply here to specific points that seem to need it — or as I have the leisure. Otherwise I reciprocate by reading and commenting on your blog posts as much as possible.

The Tanka

Click here to see all my tanka posts (sometimes in the same post as other short forms such as haiku).

I also write other 5-line verses known as gogyohka and gogyoshi (five discrete lines being the only rule).

There are more of each at my 'mindful writing' blog, Stones for the RiverLook for the 'tanka' label in the left sidebar.
