Tanka Tuesday #tanka #poetry

Updated: Jul 27, 2021

How can we be lost

basking in this silent space

we found each other

thrown out onto common ground

after incantations failed

This week, the Tanka Challenge (#235) presented by is to write a poem inspired by this photo (image credit Annette Rochelle Aben).

As a most basic guideline, a tanka is a form of poetry using a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable structure.

Check out the challenge at the link- your poem can be in any format you choose from their list. I pick tanka because I have been reading a lot of it lately, and enjoy learning more about it through my own writing. :)
