Poetry In Motion....

I am the tanka.
The attention of others
Is unnerving, and
Since I try not to draw it,
I'm left alone. Which is good.

What Poetry Form Are You?

My friend Dogmom had this on her blog. I just had to try it.

Now to go find out what a tanka is.

An online dictionary says it's "a Japanese poem consisting of 31 syllables in 5 lines, with 5 syllables in the first and third lines and 7 in the others."

I sure didn't know what it was, so I had to cheat and look it up. Sounds like it would be hard to do.
