Tanka Tuesday #tanka #poetry

Updated: Jul 7, 2021

Three deep red petals

leaves delicate as a heart

not just a street name

where my healing work was done

where my body found its breath

This week, the Tanka Challenge presented by is all about expressing why a certain flower is special to you. Simple as that, and a lovely subject for this amazing time of year in the northern hemisphere. Check out the challenge at the link.

At a most basic guideline, a Tanka is a form of poetry using a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable structure. There is a bit more to it, which I will be exploring in my next zine.

Thank you for visiting. Be well.
