Tanka Origins, Issue 3, April 2020

My thanks to the editor, an'ya, for her lovely commentary!


the autumn wind
whispers a lament
of longing
I wonder again
why you let me go


"Ah, another excellent tanka by a well liked popular poetess, Debbie Strange in Canada. Again an example of how to start with nature and end with a human element. This one is also an example of a "question tanka" which leaves the reader wondering. The words "longing" and "lament" make this tanka flow smoothly as well. Fine work as usual Debbie!"
