Tanaga

by Bastet

wet leaves

Vibrant reds and yellows glow
Brighter under rain and snow
But once the snow melts away
All that’s left is slushy grey

My heart beats now just for you
And you say you love me too
Did you say that to LynnGay
Whilst kissing her yesterday?

I’ve chosen the Tanaga style for this poem. The Tanaga is a Filipino style of poetry with four-line stanzas with the syllable count of 7-7-7-7, and a rhyme scheme of AABB. Tanagas traditionally don’t have a title per se. I’ve written this form once before, here.
