Those of us who have written tanka for years and years will be shaken up out of our old comfort zones, to aim for higher, better poetry. Those new to tanka will be encouraged to sing their own songs, to keep their own amazing voices.
Often, in any journal, I skip over some of the poems, instinctively knowing what I like. With Bright Stars I can't do that. I have to read every tanka, in case I miss something that will make me a better poet or make me smile, or weep, or learn.
M. Kei, you have done the tanka world a huge service with this new journal. Please never stop.
