Tanka poetry
Tanka poetry

We wrote traditional tanka poems with poet David Escobar-Martin last week.


Remember tanka poems are a different take on haiku poetry:

1st line: 5 syllables

2nd line: 7 syllables

3rd line: 5 syllables


4th line: 7 syllables

5th line: 7 syllables


The first stanza sets up a problem and the second stanza resolves.
