Tanka week III (Tuesday)

For there’s mystery
at times when inspiration
speaks out loud and long
a challenge to the poet
to capture the moment true


[Tanka – Japanese expressive poetry comprising 31 syllables over 5 lines in a sequence of 5, 7, 5, 7, 7]

  1. “A challenge to speak out loud and true…” Yes, especially in today’s political climate. Your Tanka inspires me! I may tackle that subject next. Do I have the courage?
