July 29 Tanka

water wheel

Five round things:
water wheels, baby cheeks,
drip drop splashes,

flames on birthday candles,
little boy's eyes of wonder.

OOOH, another poetry form that I will have to try. I always enjoy learning something from your poetry lessons. Thank you Cloudscome!

Oh, I love this! Structured poetry is so much fun to play around with. Maybe I'll try one of these for next week's Poetry Train!

Great post! You have an amazing collection of photographs. I've never written tanka. I'll have to try writing some...some day. Do you have Myra Cohn Livingston's CRICKET NEVER DOES: A COLLECTION OF HAIKU AND TANKA?
