This month at Carpe Diem all the prompts are from Jane’s Saijiki “A Dictionary of Haiku”.
In every episode, Chèvrefeuille will share haiku by Jane (and sometimes tanka) to inspire us.
All my writing for Jane Reichhold Legacy will be tanka poetry, writing tanka using one word as a prompt isn’t easy, I intend to do it in a way to honor Jane, hope it works, as I’m still learning.
September 2nd prompt is “Pines”.
Meaning in my poem “Desire for something or someone who is not present”.
as queen of poetry
discovered you a bit late
body pines for you
thanks for all the great lessons
tanka poetry I shall learn
