Just in from American Tanka Society

SPRING TANKA

April is National Poetry Month and also the anniversary month of the Tanka Society of America, which was formed in April 2000 by Michael Dylan Welch. To celebrate poetry and spring, I’d like to invite you to post tanka on the TSA Facebook page

Each week we’ll have a theme. For April 6-13, it’s “spring flowers.” You may post your own tanka or one of your favorites by another poet (please acknowledge). The tanka may be previously published or unpublished. Linking to the previous post might be fun too. Haiga are also welcome. Here’s one of mine to start off the week:

I close my eyes
and sniff again
