TANKA TAKE HOME
hosts: Firdaus Parvez, Kala Ramesh, Priti Aisola and Suraja Menon Roychowdhury
Derived from waka, this 1300-year-old five-line lyrical poem from Japan is written in 31 or fewer syllables in English. Usually composed in short, long, short, long, long format, it embraces human experiences in its small space.
Every Wednesday we, Firdaus, Kala, Priti and Suraja will be introducing you to a tanka - both by masters as well as contemporary tanka poets.
We are delighted to open the comment thread for you to share your unpublished tanka and tanka-prose to be considered for inclusion in haikuKATHA monthly magazine.
