Shrouded Silhouettes

Word Snap Weekly

For my Word Snap Weekly challenge this week, sponsored by Amanda of Unique Art Chic, I would like to add a Tanka poem to celebrate warmer temperatures (for today only) and the return to fog and rainy mornings here in Pensacola, Florida.

Shape of things

What is a Tanka, you ask?  Here is what The Poem Workshop says:

  • A tanka must be EXACTLY 5 lines.
  • The lines must follow the 5-7-5-7-7 format.
    • The 1st & 3rd lines contain 5 syllables.
    • All remaining lines contain 7 syllables.
  • A tanka usually expresses a mood, thought, or feeling.
  • A tanka does not have to rhyme.

Have a fabulous Sunday everyone.  I will see you all again,

  1. I love poetry. It is word play at it’s best. A tanka is longer and lets you say a bit more than a Haiku. ❤
