About Haiku, or Tanka

Post date: Dec 27, 2013 9:39:47 PM

Naomi Beth Wakan has a particular talent for writing poems about haiku. A new one, called “The Uses of Tanka,” is not so much about tanka as it is about haiku—if not both. I’ve just added this poem, from her most recent poetry book And After 80, to the “Poems about Haiku” section of the Poems by Others page for your poetical delectation.
