This section contains the poems, with the addition of some brief annotation, posted on the Japan 2001 Waka mailing list. The initial 2001 poems are in chronological order, starting with the earliest poem/songs and gradually moving forward through time to the haiku. Subsequent postings vary in period, but are almost all tanka, short poems. New poems are added here on an approximately weekly basis.
