Tanka – Turmoil!

In response to Colleen’s weekly tanka challenge # 98, to use the prompt words Sad & Write (Synonyms only)


the somber heart weeps

hit by emotional storm

pen scribbles in vain

the deluge of tears ink

a melancholic saga.

  1. Absolutely fabulous Tanka poem, Radhika. This line: “…the deluge of tears ink…” is excellent. The imagery really gets across the sadness. Wow! ❀
