early autumn sun
shining through the distant mist
throwing dark shadows
in harmony with the air
wishing I was in dreamland again

leaves withered and dry
flicking in front of his eyes
crackling with delight
memories of autumn days
season of mist mellow dreams

Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge – Week 54 – Domesticated & Wild

#weeklytankachallenge -54

Simple Guidelines.

Using the words “domesticated & wild” 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

  1. You can use the picture above, your own or no picture at all.

     2. 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 prompt “domesticated & wild”.

red fox a wild dog
being domesticated
does not mean a chain
I need freedom to be happy
shame animals are the same

There is no deadline here, if you would like to write a Tanka Poem from past weeks please do, I will add them to the appropriate week so readers can read them.

Tweet them on Twitter.

yellow and golden
falling leaves hide the wide path
spread like a carpet
a time for maturity
harvesting the fruits of life

maple sadly drops its head
missing morning sun
autumn approaching cooler
