'First Winter Rain' by Denis M. Garrison
I'd like to recommend 'First Winter Rain' by Denis M. Garrison as a must have collection for any serious reader/writer of tanka.
Denis is an excellent poet whose words are full of depth and creativity.
Through this collection he invites us to walk beside him for a while and with clarity and a light touch opens windows on new worlds, as page after page, his poems capture the pain and joy of life, just as it is.
As a writer, editor and publisher of tanka, Denis has given so much to this fast growing poetic form.
Through my early years as a fledgling writer, Denis published, supported and nurtured me and for that I am deeply grateful.
