tanka, other poetry, & insignificant writings of janet lynn davis
The subtle irony made me smile. So much story & character packed into 5 lines!
A funny, ironic haiku is a senryu; what do we call a funny, ironic tanka? Adelaide
Thanks, Jenny and Adelaide.Some people call it a kyoka. :)
A very different form but lovely expression.
Hi, Vandana. A growing number of us have become rather addicted to this brief form that has its roots in Japan. The love of tanka seems to have spread all over the globe; it's being written in a number of languages.
Love the humor in this, Janet!
thank you, Susan! it's a true story. ;)
