My first #Tanka attempt


Thinking of you

Dreams come alive

Divine blessing

You fill in the spaces

My heart’s missing piece

This was my first attempt at the Tanka poetry form. Thanks for the inspiration Radhi. <3

Tanka is a form of poetry that originated in Japan more than 13 centuries ago. In their purest form, Tanka poems are most commonly written as expressions of love, self-reflection and gratitude. It contains five lines and 31 syllables in the form of 5-7-5-7-7.

  1. Thinking is 2, of is 1 and you is 1 that is a total of 4 syllables.
    Dreams 1, come 1 and alive 2 again 4 syllables. That way it does not adhere to the tanka format…..but a beautiful composition all the same !!
