Three tanka published in Japan

Finally something worthy of blogging

I have been honored with 3 tanka in the Tanka Society of Japan's 2005 anthology - in Japanese. The poems are from the River Wang Tanka.

In a world
without walls,
there are no windows
to hold the moon,
my songs, your voice.

Summer's
pack ice far, far
from shore;
beluga calves
pass by unnoticed.

At play
in wet red clay
children laugh
at how their pies taste
without almonds.

Smiles, huge smiles.
