Tanka Kenkyu 2023 Yearbook introduced "DISTANCE"

In its Yearbook 2023, Tanka Kenkyu introduced "DISTANCE."
It is a collection of sequences of Tanka and Haiku published by Shabda Press, Inc. in April 2023.

It is my seventh book and is very special to me.

The book is a selection of our collaborative work of sequences of Tanka and Haiku, which Ms. Deborah P. Kolodji and I wrote together during 2019 - 2022 when the COVID pandemic divided us between the Pacific.

We named this new style of poetry literature "Tan-Ku." We also received an unexpected honor from the California Senate State and Assembly for this book.

I am deeply grateful for Tanka Kenkyu Inc.'s attention to this collection.
