It Takes Two to Tanka

Written for JUST ONE TANKA CONTEST


I have two Tanka's
You say you only want one
Which one would you like
The Sad or the one that's fun
Now the contest has begun

Don't Write Me off Today

Short attention span
Mask a great thinking mind set
Round boy tiger eyes
Alert and learning into
A man of thought inventions

Life and Death Re-write

Tetractys version:

Her 
eyes blinked
then fluttered
She was awake
We rushed over weeping tears of relief

Another family passed in the hall
Huddled as one
We noticed
they wept
too

Tanka version: 

inaudible words
eyes blinking and fluttering
she was waking up
we rushed over to her side
weeping warm, sweet tears of joy

arm in arm, heads bowed
another family passed
who wept as we did
yet they wept different tears
their tears were not tears of joy

Deb's contest

ilan pang tangka sa tanka

watching the leaves 
touching damp earth
I walk on, (pondering)—
how graceful they fall
     so unlike me

************************************************************

                                            
feathered silence folded in paper tickled— with the sound of your laughter
************************************************************ holding the plum bowl glass shatters as my fingers slip my heart along with it ************************************************************ listening in entomology class I yawn…. swallowing a mosquito ************************************************************
creased with silence letting go of that paper boat— I write your name in water
************************************************************ a few (ilan) of my attempts (tangka) at writing some tanka some time ago, they probably don't even qualify as tanka? these aren't related with each other though... Also me just trying to see if formatting will hold this time? The other day when I tried it, it did (even from Word) now, even from notepad, the formatting is all aligned to the left? Lemme see center now if it stays as centered (ok, it actually does). But aligning it to the right doesn't seem to stay though?

Namaste namasti

Teaching what I learnt
From heroes and 
heroines-
The known and 
unknown
I owe each each of you 
hugs
Which I know are not 
worthless.

-Haiku-
Namaste my gems-
Smashing spread and 
light my pen.
Shalom to you all.

When You Died

When you died 
I couldn't write a poem.
I felt too deeply,
or I didn't feel enough.
Or maybe I died too.
