Carpe Diem’s Tanka Splendor #5 summertime

Standard

Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new Tanka Splendor, our special feature here at WP’s part of our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Family. Spring is running towards its end and it is almost summer. For this Tanka Splendor I have chosen a nice theme “summertime”. The goal is to create a tanka themed summertime.

An example:

after a hot day
the deserted beach cools down
rain falls gently
boats of fishermen appear
the night belongs to them

And now it is up to you to create a Tanka. A Tanka is a five-lined Japanese poem following the syllables-count 5-7-5-7-7, but as you maybe know you don’t need to follow that syllables-count.

Enjoy …!

You can respond until next Saturday May 27th 10:00 PM (CET)
