My Dear Poets and Readers:
In the back of my mind echo Basho's words, "Every day is a journey, and the journey itself home." In a few hours, I'll embark on a journey into Austria, the Land of Music, and hopefully I'll be back in shape on June 13th.
The following is the 18-day poetic food supply: 66 Haiku Selected for Butterfly Dream, Volume III and 66 Tanka Selected for One Man's Maple Moon, Volume III
my midlife drained of all
for these magic words,
on the windowsill
two canaries singing
to each other
I tweet and retweet
Many thanks for your ongoing support of my translation project and for helping increase NeverEnding Story's readership. And I Look forward to reading your new work (see 2017 haiku and tanka anthology submission guidelines)
Have a great Summer!
