I’ve found that submitting myself to a strict poetical form helps me find clearer focus in all of my writing. I intend my efforts at Tanka to help me write incisive prose. It’s a surprise when one gets published. I thought I’d share the surprise. You’ll have to scroll down a bit, but all of the poems are worthy.
P.S. Those of you who know me are well aware that I shamelessly plagiarise myself! Forgive me!
