Just a quick post to announce the latest edition of A Hundred Gourds – a quarterly journal of haiku, tanka, haiga, haibun & renku – including fine work from around the world.

Read my own contribution here.

This specific tanka is about my friend Dennis Flinn (who I wrote about previously here).  He had a habit of collecting newspapers, stacks of them, with the goal of going through them all.

To go through each word – yes, that’s a fine goal, indeed.

See you Friday!
