Margarita Engle has challenged us to write a tanka this month. She suggests we think of it as a five-line travel diary about a subject of our choice. Click HERE for more details.

Send your tanka to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration TOMORROW, March 27th. One lucky participant will win an autographed copy of Margarita's delightful new picture book:


  1. Thank you for this beautiful tanka, Michelle. The flowers in their frilly dresses and Mr. Spider in his smart striped suit accompany it so well. Surely, Mother Nature MUST be listening!

  2. Thanks for featuring my tanka and art today Michelle! I had a couple words with Mother Nature today, she brought the sun out and told me be patient it's coming...

  3. That is just so lovely. Musical. So wonderful.

  4. The beautiful art really enhances your lovely poem.

  5. Love the poem by Michelle Kogan and Marilyn's book.
