“Dying to Visit a Graveyard” (on my Deja-ku Diary blog) explores similar haiku, tanka, and two longer poems about the “dash” between two dates on gravestones, and how such a simple mark represents an entire life. This post features poems and translations by Steve Sanfield, Linda Ellis, Larry Kimmel, Issa, Robert Hass, Harold Stewart, Yvonne Cabalona, Sylvia Forges-Ryan, James Martin, Jermaine Williams, Frank Judge​, and Kwaku Feni Adow​.
