Tanka - Poem by Dan Pugh

Home is where you came
After the war had ended
For you were lucky...
But for the rest of your life
You will weep for friends you lost

(Third Prize Winner in
the Poetry Society of Japan's
Third International Contest held 1992) Haiku Infilled the valleys
which our forefathers tilled...
buried and built on.

(First Prize Winner in Spring 1994
contest held by AZAMI Haiku-in-English Magazine)
