O knihe

I am Tekkan. I have married the poetic forms of the sonnet and the tanka. A story is told in the sonnet - using three quatrains, and a final couplet. The story reaches a conclusion in the couplet. The tanka offers a commentary or counterpoint to the sonnet - the combined poems have two endings. The meaning is direct - I want people to understand clearly. Metaphors are inspired by Shakespeare, the (aimed-for) precision imitates the Japanese. Mixing the sonnet with the tanka combines the sensibility of the Occident and the Orient - as I have done by living in America, England, and Japan.
The subjects covered in Everyday Mind VI include - the Chinese poet Cold Mountain - castoff luxury - a whirlwind in my head - galaxies - the Galveston hurricane of 1900.
"Tekkan" is the dharma name I was given. I use Zen mediation to make poetry of ordinary events. Tekkan means, Iron Man, a settled practitioner of great determination.
