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.

Author Biography

"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.
