Bright Eyes #tanka

That hair out of place
A little laugh at nothing
A stare into space
Some may see your perfection
I see what makes you special


This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. This week was poet’s choice. I wrote a tanka.

Yes, another of my drawings. I posted a “colorized” version of this a few weeks ago.

        Great, hope you can participate. I think the sijo is a really friendly form. It is like a haiku, but with more words to play with. It’s less of a quick sketch and more like flash fiction, with the twist at the end at which you excel.
