Add to Cal
We will be reading "red lights" , an American contemporary tanka journal. Tanka is a five line lyrical form, it precedes haiku, it means "little song". It often embodies a leap of imagination and emotional component. Some of our members have published here. Japanese poets of antiquity kept tanka dairies, travel journals, and collections that served as an expression of their lives. A discussion of tanka poetry and translations from in English to French and any other language represented. Join our friendly meeting at tables outside the Red Door Cafe. We'll also work on drawing from photos of Asian objects. Look for Kathabela's flowery hat to located the group table. New poets and listeners welcome.
