Card Games (Karuta)

Card Games (Karuta)

family circled
cards dealt out, game commences
played into the night

This episode of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai references Uta-garuta, a traditional Japanese New Year’s card game (that involves haiku!). Growing up, my family viewed every holiday as an excuse/reason to play cards, usually pinochle or hearts or 65.
