Tri-Tanka I (tanka)

by Jem Croucher

To start this series
in thirty-one syllables
Japanese Tanka
A short song to bring you joy
Jemverse social media

So here are first lines
Crafted by the poet’s hand
Found and captured here
To form and syntax structured
Voicing life in five short lines

And I play with words
Crafting here my poetry
for you the reader
To take, ponder and reflect
for life’s many bright moments
