Poems from Daisougen Nikki 大草原日記 The Great Prairie Diary

Now that Calontir Kingdom Arts and Sciences is over, here is my project. During the year 2015, I challenged myself to compose a tanka poem a day for a year. I didn’t quite hit the mark, but I did write 327 poems. I picked 42 of these poems to present for this project, and wrote documentation for my work. Since I knew most of my judges would probably not have a background in Japanese literature, I tried to give examples of how medieval Japanese poets classified their own poetry. It is a bit of a long read–24 pages, but if you are interested, please enjoy. The format is pdf.
