The tanka is a 5-line lyric poem grounded in concrete imagery yet infused with intimacy in the form of a subjective response. My memories of a sunset upon Barra de Santiago, El Salvador were the inspiration for the poem.

  • Of blood and blue hue,

  • Barra de Santiago.

  • Where sky and sea kiss

  • A knee-deep tree reminds me

  • The worldly beauty I'll miss.
