“The practice of writing tanka increases our consciousness of emotions and perceptions, prompting us to build castles of words where others may see only sand.” —from the introduction
“The alchemy of tanka is that this poetry changes us, making us more aware of the mundane and miraculous. Indeed, the practice of writing tanka increases our consciousness of emotions and perceptions, prompting us to build castles of words where others may see only sand. The poets represented in this book—the premier anthology by members of the Tanka Society of America—invite you to explore their poems, which, ultimately, is an exploration of yourself.” —from the back cover
