It is hoped that readers will experience this ancient style of Japanese poetry in such a way that they are inspired to write their own tanka poems.

Such is one of the purposes of A Shawl of Mist. Another purpose of this book is to share essays written to accompany and complement the tanka poems. The short essays included here provide practical thoughts based on the author s long years of personal and professional experiences studying, reading, teaching, thinking, and especially, cherishing each day of living in Japan, the United States, and Guam.
