Tanka--By Anne Curran--New Zealand

a photo
of my smiling, handsome father
on the funeral leaflet ...
that's how my mother
wants to remember him

Anne Curran is a Hamiltonian and New Zealander. She writes in awe and admiration of all those Japanese verse poets and editors who have encouraged her on this journey.
