Blurry Eyed I Wake (Tanka)

Blurry eyed I wake
Smell of spring envelops me
Song birds my alarm
Only Heaven could surpass
The perfection of this day

  1. Very nice writing! I either never learned or never cared about remembering all these different styles of writing. I admire those who do it so beautifully! My writing is more like words or thoughts that just fly out of my mouth from my heart/brain. LOL Lovely writing 😀

    • It really isn’t important (at least to me) what form poetry comes in. Free verse is just as much poetry as a sonnet or a tanka and no less difficult in my opinion. I do write a lot of free verse as well and as far as I’m concerned poetry is about the message not the form. Keep doing what you are doing, poetry is poetry. 🙂
