Tanka Workshop #3
Tanka Workshop / Fall ‘21
The most recent Tanka Workshop was held at the Poughkeepsie Galleria community room on Nov. 14.
The title of the Tanka was ”deru” (the kanji meaning “to leave”). Members were asked to consider variations of this popular word, like “exit” and “departure”.
Most members felt this title would be very easy, but they found out later it was not as easy as they had first thought. So, that means they might have had a good practice session!
After the Tanka workshop, we were able to have a little tea party to celebrate being able to stay safe from the Coronavirus. Now we must worry about the Omicron variant that is beginning!
I pray that we will be able to enjoy our next Tanka workshop in good health!!
