Marje A. Dyck’s Still Blue Water

New to the Introductions page is my contribution to Marje A. Dyck’s wonderful new book of tanka, Still Blue Water (Saskatoon: Calisto Press, 2012). My short introduction, titled “Belonging,” explores the prairie-influenced beauty and simplicity of Marje’s tanka. See the end of the introduction for book ordering information. Here's a sample poem:
 
        wind sighing
        through the trees
        that first night—
        knowing this
        I belong here
