I've seen pink moon
just only silver stone ball
in the sky lightning
darling pale blue clouds close in
casting away the landscape

I don't know if this is a tanka or not. But I tried to make it into a one form. one particular Japanese
form of a poetic verse, which almost close to a haiku. I did a haiku before. It was no easy. I have to think some syllables in the third line of a sentence
and even the last line. I had a hard time with the process of a haiku. but i have fun with it. I even had my mom to help me.
With this process of my own tanka, I know it has 5 lines the first line & the third has 5 syllables. the rest has 7 syllables...i went to some poetry blogs & some tanka sites.
I thought thee type of poems are cool and full of inspiration so I decided to make one of my own.
So what do u think of m first tanka? I've tried my best......
