Marje A. Dyck’s Still Blue Water

Post date: Jan 21, 2013 9:43:44 AM

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
