Yes, NaPoWriMo‘s option today is one of my favorite poetic forms, the tanka! I’m a firm believer in brevity, and it’s truly an art form when you say something concisely and people get a gist of what you’re conveying. I wrote two tankas today. Enjoy!
The Gift of Gab
Flash those pearly whites
at me, you can string along
as many senten-
ces as you like. Conversa-
tions are meant to be treasured.
Drinking : Tea :: Kissing : Lips
I cup your face like
I cradle warm mugs as I
sip Chai tea from your
lips and savor the sweet taste.
I can go for seconds, sir.
