Description

A Tanka is a fun poem to write. It starts off like a haiku with a 5-7-5 syllable count (so the first line has five syllables, second line has seven, the last line has five again). Line four and five both have seven syllables. So it’s a five line poem with a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable count. See an example in the contest announcement. Enter this contest for a chance at the cash prize!
