Collaboration through time: Ancient waka and modern day reflections

The Early Women Masters website is a fascinating place to visit in itself, featuring everything from prehistoric pottery to Ragtime compositions by women. There's quite a selection of poetry, and this page features waka by Buddhist nun Otagaki Rengetsu (太田垣蓮月) (1791-1875). Accompanying each waka is a reflection on her own music by marimba virtuoso Keiko Abe...a beautiful collaboration to contemplate on a Saturday this cherry blossom season.

Waka Fest continues here at The Reiki Digest. To submit your waka, waka articles, or cherry blossom inspired art, please send it in an email to waka @, and be sure to include the word "waka" in the subject line.
