Art books (Tanka)

June 25, 2022

Hi Folks,

Well, as I begin breakfast, here on Halkyn Mountain, the risen sun is blazing down between legions of dark bulbous cloud drifting north up the estuary below.

It’s a very still, very quiet, rather sticky summer’s morning, sparrows squabbling for fat-balls and seed from our feeders out back.  A couple of butterflies come jazzing past my window.  And the moment feels just right for posting a tanka of mine.

It was published in Blithe Spirit, Journal of the British Haiku Society, 32.2, May 2022.

Have a great weekend, everyone.


Here comes my tanka:

on the coffee table…

far below our window

dawn fire

lights the estuary
