NeverEnding Story Anthology Submission Guidelines

A haiku or a tanka without "rhetoric" was likely to be no more  than a brief observation without poetic tension or illumination.
-- Donald Keene, The Winter Sun Shines in: A Life of Masaoka Shiki, p 57.

Ring out the Vulgar, Ring in the Poetic

first sunrise ...
my midlife drained of all
but hungry
for these magic words
NeverEnding Story

on the windowsill
two canaries singing
to each other
I tweet and retweet
NeverEnding Story
