winter night--
the beggar murmuring
to its shivering
                                            Winternacht —
                                            der Bettler murmelt
                                            in ihr Frösteln

winter soup–
I remember the way
my grandmother hums

distant waves
the sound creates
my own ocean

Reasoning the Reality

The curve of backbone
Reflects the bitter identity
Through the thinnest shrunken skin.
The deepened tender eye balls
Roll in hunger
In search of the drops of hope
From the hanging clouds.
Her soft fingers comb over her daughters
Scripting the versification of life.
The scarcity of humanism
Epicenters  the  tragic social quake.
As undistinguished part of breath,
The death takes birth before the life.

Atlas Poetica 17, Spring Issue 2014

Atlas Poetica 17 focuses on urban and French tanka. Our urban special feature (available on the website) received an extraordinary number of submissions, many of which spilled over to contribute to the current issue. In addition, we are pleased to have information about French tanka written by Janick Belleau and translated by Maxianne Berger. The history of French tanka in French and English expands our understanding of tanka around the world.
