Using the words “space & dream” and write a tanka poem.
Tanka poetry consists of five units, usually with the following pattern of – 5-7-5-7-7 which is syllables.
The first three lines (5/7/5) are the upper phase. This upper stage is where you create an image in your reader’s mind.
The last two lines (7/7) of a Tanka poem are called the lower phase. The final two lines should express the poet’s ideas about the image that was created in the three lines above.

My tanka poem using the words “space & dream”.
forest to the left
northern lights shine in the sky
like a viral dream drifting
through space upon a spiral
