Tanka Poetry # 2 – Blossom

img_20160904_085112619

As the tender buds

so delicately woven

unfurls its petals,

A floral blushing beauty,

Magical sight to behold!

Tanka is a poetry form which originated in Japan more than 13 centuries ago. In its purest form, tanka poems are most commonly written as expressions of love, self-reflection, and gratitude. It contains five lines and 31 syllables in the form of 5-7-5-7-7.

    I kept looking at the flowers, and then the poetry again and again and again . There is a mystic aura about the whole.

    I think i know what inner beauty is now.
