Tanka Mentoring

Would anyone experienced in tanka like to mentor it? Taking a free beginner course in it, but no mentoring group for it. Would but I am ignorant in it. Go ahead, be a sport!

Here are three I am fooling around with:

In memory of George Floyd

white chalk
on this asphalt
outline
of his long pain
to the curb's end


firefly watching
down this Ogod river
in a stillness
that spreads a moonless light
the river of heaven


Aqaba beachfront                                   
how the stillness suspends
air                                                               
on a G string
the sound's back and forth ache

 ;D :-[ :P  Simple and always stepping in it. I just stumbled onto Alan Summers Wonderful Tanka workshops. However, for ultra, ultra-beginners like myself, why not mentoring in tanka for beginners like there is for haiku.

Sounds good!

At the moment we are not running a tanka workshop, although we do have tanka as part of our online haibun, and Timeless Art zoom sessions.

warm regards,
Alan
