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, I intend to do it in a way to honor Jane, hope it works, as I’m still learning.
September 9th, 2016 prompt is “Stones”
mother consoled me
sticks and stones will break your bones
when pain hurt my sole
I believe those old wives tales
true – names will never hurt you
