A Windfall of Tanka

This has been a lovely month for me in the poetry world with a bunch of things published. I’ll do this in several postings so viewing is easier. Early this week I had two tanka published in the Fall 2015 issue of Ribbons, the official publication of the Tanka Society of America. It is such an honor to have work appear in this journal. Two wonderful editors offer a wonderful chance for me to learn and grow as a tanka poet.

p. 30 (regular part of Ribbons):

it begins with a slight fissure
hidden inside…
still I wonder
why it had to end


p. 21 (in the Tanka Cafe)

fresh water
cleansing, nourishing–
letting the earth
grow green
once more
