Tanka
Inspired by

Kathabela’s Prompts:

“No ordinary flower”

“What cannot be contained”

“What fruit do you identify with or talk to”

and
Gary Blankenship’s
“Children playing (in the streets)”

Since August 1, 2012 members of Tanka Poets on Site,
an online collaborative group on Facebook has written tanka on on 382
prompts. We archive all the poems written to the site, and estimate that we have collected close to 8,000 tanka from international poets.

The prompts are given by Kath Abela Wilson (Kathabela)
Assisted once a week now, by Gary Blankenship.

Gary is the head archivist, assisted by Kathabela, and recently joined as assistant archivist by Susan Burch.
