my sense of being
homeless in English
sits heavy when my spirit
is off kilter-
breathes home into my house

We would like to invite you to submit tanka, tanka prose and other short form poetry of any style on the theme of houses and home. If we are happy with the selections we receive, we plan on creating a print publication. What is home to you? Have you found home, or lost it? You are welcome to interpret the theme liberally. Please submit your work by October 1st and specify if you would like it to be considered for our print publication.

We are pleased to offer a selection of tanka from several wonderful poets, some of whom are new to us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have submitted. While we have not published all of the work we received, we have enjoyed reading everything. Leslie was pleased to receive tanka from Kala Ramesh. Her work can be seen in the tanka practice section. Kala’s tanka, “seeing the whole” summons a zen-like feeling of mystery. Nelima found an’ya’s piece, “old memories,” remarkable in its representation of the mind’s inner workings. Each of the works that we have published in this issue offer both perception and beauty.
One thought-there is an art to reading poetry as well as an art to writing it. Please read this issue with that in mind. How can you, as a reader, open yourself to the perceptions of the writer?
Please see the pull down menu to your left under Featured Poets, 6.15.2013
