Wednesdays are wordless
According to some bloggers
But how can poets
Contain all the bubbly words
Springing up inside of them?
A tanka is a form of Japanese poetry
that follows a syllable format.
Unlike Haiku with only three lines,
Tankas are composed of 5 lines.
Lines 1 and 3 have 5 syllables.
Lines 2, 4, and 5 contain 7 syllables each.
Try your hand at a Tanka!
Line 1- 5 syllables
Line 2- 7 syllables
Line 3- 5 syllables
Line 4- 7 syllables
Line 5- 7 syllables
