Dreaming in Tanka Form

with starry-eyed grasp
a pen desiring its flow
romantic musings
the essence of wishing words
showing love’s endearing glow

    how lovely this one is. Sorry I missed it until now! Thanks for my placement in your contest. I love nursery rhymes and that was a very interesting contest to me.

    That's a true poem in its essence and a real tanka in view of the feelings it evokes! I adore tankas and haikus. I have posted some, too

    tanka does not usually have titles so I'm told, but since Poetry soup requires one, it's the best I could come up with.
