Today in a Tanka:
A waste of time? Well,
Maybe. Not like I could have
Changed if I tried. Like
The song, I give a high pitched
Note, but a scream. Too little. A.
Notes on tankas:
- They’re similar to a haiku, but longer, as you can see.
- The syllable count: 5,7,5, like a haiku, but then an extra 7,7.
- From what I gather, they’re a lot less nature focused, and poets tend to take a lot of liberties with the last two lines.
Have a go, have some fun!
