TANKA

I have enjoyed writing the haiku’s, so I thought I would stretch my self a little more and write a Tanka or two. Here’s the first:

Rejection.

“I love you deeply”,
His tremulous voice withers.
She shrugs, turns and leaves.
Her silhouette melds into
The horizon as she walks.

Daily Haiku for Thursday

It’s that time of year.
The blinding sun seems lower
And narrows the eye.

Daily Haiku for Wednesday

Rising and falling,
The fierce breakers crash against
The sea beaten rocks.

Daily Haiku for Tuesday

Fiery coloured leaves
Dance to the tune of the wind
In haphazard twists.

Autumn is here, an
Inspiration to poets
Owed to the west wind.

Daily Haiku

A haiku is a Japanese lyric form which encapsulates a single impression of a natural object or scene in seventeen syllables arranged in three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. Writing a haiku every day trains your attention and your ability to capture a moment in a succinct form. So here is the first of my daily haiku:

Seagulls mocking call
Draws you to a pale blue sky.
I smile and wonder …
