Eucalypt Tanka Journal ed. Julie Thorndyke

Thank you to Julie Thorndyke for her excellent editoring of the Eucalypt Journal for Tanka. I always feek excited and honoured when Julie chooses one of my tanka for the publication.

Dear Colleen,

Thank you for your submission to Eucalypt issue 35.
I have pleasure in accepting the following poem


a new sandbar

slows the river’s rush

toward the sea

sometimes in my life

I wonder why I hurry


Colleen Keating
