Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at Tanka Splendor, another part of the CDHK community. Let me (re)tell you the goal of Tanka Splendor. Tanka is a five-lined poem that originated from the Waka, an ancient Japanese poem, and became renown through Jane Reichhold (1937-2018). Jane was one of the greatest haiku and tanka poets modern times has seen.
