Copy and paste the link of your finished tanka in the comments below, I will acknowledge them the following week, also share on social networks.

My tanka poem  – using the words “earth & spring”.

pollinators of the earth

needed for regrowth

no food to feed the whole world

  2. A Tanka poem is very new to me. I was drawn to the image because it’s very much like the one I took a few years ago on my phone. Even though I can’t take part, I look forward to reading all the poems and learning more about what makes a great Tanka Poem
