Tanka Poetry The Messenger

Tanka (短歌) is a long form of Japanese poetry. It is consists of five phrases of 5, 7, 5, 7 and 7 syllables. This 31-syllable poem has been a popular form of poetry in Japan for more than 1300 years. As a form of poetry, Tanka is much older than Haiku and Senryu, and Tanka evokes a moment with concision and musicality. In Japanese, Tanka is often written in one straight line, while they are usually divided into the five phrases: 5-7-5-7-7 in English and other languages. Excerpt Taken from Poetry of Japan Website >

Tanka Poetry The Messenger

Ripples in the wind
The reflections of the palm
Hustle and shuffle
The chaotic winds unfurl
Messenger of Gaia.
