Dear friends,

It’s a pleasure to try to give this weblog a new boost. So I hope to do this every Wednesday from now on. A new episode of Tanka Splendor. This week I have a wonderful tanka by Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) to inspire you to create your own Tanka.

Here is the Tanka by Jane Reichhold:

your sleeping breath
night rain revives the earth
waves of sea air
in bright yellow daffodils
nod to the dark wind

Isn’t it a beauty? I am not a great Tanka poet, because haiku is still my first love, but I have given it a try to create a tanka inspired on this beauty by Jane Reichhold.

dancing naked
in the light of the blue moon
she cleanses me
her warmth cherishes my body
the sweet scent of Honeysuckle

And now … it is up to you to create a Tanka inspired on this beauty. Have fun!
