The Language of Loss: Haiku & Tanka Conversations

 The Language of Loss: Haiku & Tanka Conversations

Winner of the 2019 International Women's Haiku Contest




The Language of Loss: Haiku & Tanka Conversations - released by Sable Books, October 2020:




"The Language of Loss contains tanka and haiku of exceptional quality. But it is the remarkable way in which the poet links tanka and haiku that elevated The Language of Loss into the winner's circle. The poems on each page come together in a conversation of many layers. That these conversations will deepen and change for each reader is due to the author's expertise. I am delighted to congratulate Debbie Strange on her winning collection."

"These exquisite poems illuminate the skill of the author in pairing haiku and tanka in conversation, one page at a time. On one page, the long ago past talks to the recent past. On another, the sorrow of the natural world is juxtaposed with that of the human world."

—Roberta Beary, final judge
author of The Unworn Necklace, and Deflection
