The Latest Tanka Sequence

Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

Oct. 8, Friday Zoom Poetry Meeting

I participated in the Friday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson on October 8 from 4:00 p.m. PDT (8:00 a.m. JST on October 9).

I performed reading of the latest three pieces, "Autumn Ghosts," "Leaving the Womb," and "Traces," which are the haiku & tanka sequences I wrote with Deborah P Kolodji.

"Traces" is the 18th sequence we wrote together, and we were inspired by the photo I took of an autumn cloud that looks like a great fingerprint.

I would like t share it with you after it is published in a poetry magazine.
