Mental Health, Other Poetry Add comments

Hey there!

Today I attempted a Tanka, which is another form of Japanese poetry, two 7-syllable lines longer than a Haiku (so following the pattern of 5-7-5-7-7).  I didn’t find any guidance on Wikipedia as to what the subject matter is supposed to be, so I just went with what sprang to mind!


Heart on a snowy ground with icicles above itIn my element,

I turn on my icy glare

And smile as you flee.

I crystalise my might while

You melt away to nothing.
