Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at Tanka Splendor, another part of the CDHK community. Let me (re)tell you the goal of Tanka Splendor. Tanka is a five-lined poem that originated from the Waka, an ancient Japanese poem, and became renown through Jane Reichhold (1937-2018). Jane was one of the greatest haiku and tanka poets modern times has seen.

Here at Tanka Splendor, Chèvrefeuille (host and owner of https://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com) challenges his visitors to create a Tanka on a given theme. For this restarting the engines post he loves to challenge you to create a tanka (or kyoka, the more humourful form of Tanka) on the following theme:

A nice theme I would say. So I am looking forward to all your responses. Add your link to the widget here below:
