Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to present to you all a new episode of our special feature "Ask Jane ..." As you all know Jane (Reichhold) has some problems with her health and so she couldn't write earlier a new episode of this special feature. Jane and I have contact on a regular base by mail and she wishes you all a wonderful, creative and inspiring 2015. She hopes to write a new episode for "Ask Jane ..." and asks you to think about questions you have about haiku and tanka. As you all know we have a special email-address for these questions. You can email your questions for Jane to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This episode of "Ask Jane ..." is about Tanka, the grandmother of Haiku. This episode saw the life light in response on a question by Jen of Blog It or Lose It. As you all know I am not a big fan of Tanka, but this episode is very uplifting and maybe I will become addicted to Tanka also ... time will see ...
Have fun reading this episode and maybe you can share a Tanka in the comments field.
