for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

‘as wind skitters’ (my tanka adjudged ‘excellent’ in the 7th International Tanka Festival Competition)

My tanka adjudged ‘excellent’ among others well-known in the tanka sphere:

as wind skitters
through dry sedge
this thought
of shredded feathers

dry grass at English Bay, West End, Vancouver, BC

…at The 7th International Tanka Festival Competition, 2012 by Japan Tanka Poets’ Society, with 589 entries from all over the world that passed through the four judges: Jane Reichhold (U. S. A.), Beverley George (Australia), Yasuhiro Kawamura (Japan), and Aya Yuhki (Japan). Another tanka was adjudged ‘fine’.

CONGRATULATIONS to many friends in the terrific harvest!!!
