Seventy-Nine Tanka

Tanka is the last surviving genre of classical Japanese poetry. The tanka is meant to describe a moment, an emotion, an image with such clarity that you feel as if you are in the moment. I present my moments to you in the hope that you experience them as I did, that you will see what I saw, and feel what I felt.

He is a US Navy veteran (submarine service), considers himself a patriot and has spent most of his life working as a Controls Engineer.
