TANKA 17: Dwelling


The burst of greens
Fresh air that lingers within
A dose of own’s medicine
Burnt bridges, cherished things
Home for souls with shattered wings

TANKA 16 : Nature


Nature‘s a double-edged sword
Global warming‘s one of its wraths unfold
Cost of our abuse untold
Unleashing its power which is tenfold
Just as its beauty our sight behold

It’s been several weeks that I am unable to write a TANKA poetry and I’m not feeling good about it. It seems that my mommy duties got in the way but at least I can catch up. I’m so excited to share this entry and even more excited to read yours. For instructions, kindly click here. Good luck!




My jaw just dropped
A wonder before my eyes
Seasons to behold
Animals within my grasp
Caused me delight I can’t outlast.

Kill or be killed
Which one would you prefer?
Games of life’s not for the weak
Fight like birds that have beak
Though your chances are bleak.

Drenched her with pain

While she walked down the streets
Her thoughts run so deep
