Poem a day. Day 11


NaPoWriMo says “write a tanka. This, like the “American” cinquain, is a poem based on syllables, with the pattern being 5-7-5-7-7. They work best when those final two 7-syllable lines contain a sort of turn or surprise that the first three lines might not wholly anticipate.”

Doesn’t exactly fit the rule, but I’m tired.
