50 thoughts on “A Waking Tanka

    1. Thank you, Aruna! Tanka is a Japanese poetry form with a syllable pattern 5-7-5-7-7
      The first three lines, or “upper phrase”, were often nature observations, and the last two, or “lower phrase”, were for the writer’s thoughts or interpretations.
      It’s a fun form to play with!
