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 10th, 2016 prompt is “Frogs & Fish”
if every female
believed boys like frogs and fish
you would never learn
what my mother tried to teach
the true facts about young men
