Jeanne Lupton writes, I enjoy writing tanka as emotional diary, as a way to peace, as a song of nature, as a reminder of love, as play and work, as connection, as celebration, as gift, as a practice in concision, as a practice in honesty, as a way of life. These are free form tanka that give uplift and depth to our everyday experience. Most of these tanka have appeared in tanka journals.

Jeanne Lupton, poet and writer, leads writing groups at the Women's Cancer Resource Center and Lakeview Library. She hosts Frank Bette Center for the Arts Second Saturdays Poetry and Prose Reading Series in Alameda, California.Review:
An attractive chapbook on good quality paper, but then you danced presents tanka poetry one per page interspersed with occasional illustrations by the author. The quality of the poetry is excellent, and evokes the tanka spirit we all admire so much. Lupton s keenly observed details of her life serve as a lens focusing greater human truths; she is not just a woman, but Everywoman. She journeys through her life with the intensely emotional but never sentimental heart of a poet, faithfully recording her truths that speak to all women. By M. Kei --ahapoetry.com
