A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 10 August 2019!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tanka. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Tanka?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
Tanka is a classic form of Japanese poetry related to the haiku with five unrhymed lines of five, seven, five, seven, and seven syllables. (5, 7, 5, 7, 7)
Example of Tanka
intrinsic to our spirit
lost in pensive thought
standing on the edge of time
the road to nowhere special.

When things are tough and
change catches you unaware,
remember to stop.
Take time to see the beauty
in those monumental moments.
