One Man's Maple Moon: 66 Selected English-Chinese Bilingual Tanka, Volume 3, 2017

Translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu



Featured Poet:

The daily practice of crafting tanka is akin to writing lyrics. It connects me more closely to the natural world, and to myself.


Best Tanka:


migrating geese
writing cursive letters
across the sky
I finally read between
the white of your lies

and (whose) fault lines
cracking open
we try to mend the damage
of our quaking lives


Undertow Tanka Review 1, August 2014


Tanka of my choice:



the growth rings
of otoliths and trees . . .
when did she
become smaller
than her daughters

2nd Place

the pair bonds
of prairie voles . . .
she asks
if he used to be
her husband

3rd Place
United Haiku and Tanka Society Fleeting Words Tanka Competition 2017


the architecture
of impending storms . . .
every cloud
that hangs over me
has a given name

Honourable Mention
