  • Dumplings - Tanka or Not? That is the Question!

    Fried Dumplings

    THE hungry wolves howled
    silhouetted by dour moon
    scaring the children
    who ran, laughing hyenas
    to my hut for fried dumplings

    I don't know if it's tanka, but it sings and intrigues and delights, MHenry.

      Thank you, grant. I am intrigued by this ancient form of poem, and hope to write more of these as inspiration permits.

        Glad I'm reading this after 'Hell on Earth'. I'll sleep better (even with a wolf at the door).

          Cuddle up to your big, strong man, and he won't let the wolf get away with any huffing and puffing!

        Yes, a tanka indeed; enjoyed the playful nature of your creation, MHenry. And the fried dumplings too! Reading deeper, the themes of hunger and plentitude for the vulnerable intersect and match up perfectly in the strong imagery of the moon. Well done; onward to more and soon you'll have a book's worth! I'm putting the finishing touches (or trying to) on my first boomerang, finding that form to be more challenging than I thought. But it's all great fun!

          Thank you, Katray! I am sure the Boomerang will be well suited to you, as it is merely another way to express your enchanting thoughts and beautiful words.

        This is a tanka poem. 5-7-5-7-7 and there is nature and emotions throughout this beautifully painted piece.
