Using the words “mirror & fun” 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.
Not sure of your Syllable count? Check Here.
You can use the picture above, your own or no picture at all.
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.
