Sarah, this is so moving.
Yes, that old fellow’s music never fails to move me. It sort of floats from his house and rises, to mingle with the smell of autumn woodsmoke. I could go on and on…
I am just trying to catch up and am so far behind in my blogging. But I came upon this in my inbox. I must have kept it for some reason, I thought. Just reread it and got chills of appreciation. Oh, yes, THAT’s why I kept it there. It lives there still!
Yes, I get very behind, too, and save my favourites in my inbox for later comment. I’m glad you liked the tanka.
Do you think I need to post something to explain more about tanka poetry, as I’m not sure everybody is as familiar with this form as they are with haiku?
I think that’s a great idea. I would like to know more about it.
