Tanka- for Anne Lise

Haiku thoughts abound.
Upon your page sit fifty
Condensed verse poems
Crying out for two more lines
Haiku transformed to Tanka.

There are so many afraid to try these forms. It just takes some practice. I find lines of 5 and 7 show up in a lot of my work..LOL

Try starting with Senryu.. a bit easier than haiku because of the subject matter. Senryu can be turned into Tanka also because western Tanka does not have the subject restrictions.

So it's fifty one but I needed a little poetic license to make it fit.
