Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

Scarlet Dragonfly Journal published "The Color Red."

On December 25 PST, (2022.12.26, JST), an online poetry journal "Scarlet Dragonfly Journal" published "The Color Red."

It is a set of English tanka & haiku (Tan-Ku) I created together with Ms. Debora P. Kolodji, my best friend haiku poet.

My sincere thanks to the editor, Ms. Kathleen Trocmet.


The Color Red

a fir tree
in the maple forest
green . . .
melancholy (M)

dressing up drab clothes
with Christmas bling
I feel like singing (D)
