My Take – #TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 262, 2/22/22 #THEMEPROMPT

Ken Gierke (Rivrvlogr) from last month’s challenge picked the theme.

This week I chose to write a tanka prose.

night becomes day

When day is done, we go to sleep. We get rested for a fresh start in the morning. We transition from one day to the next.

eyes flutter open
dream images dissipate as
a new day launches
reimagine, make new habits
it’s time to live our best lives

Tanka is typically written in the 5-7-5-7-7 or s/l/s/l/l five-line syllabic structure. Tanka prose contains a title. One basic requirement: one paragraph, and one tanka. There are two basic forms in classic tanka prose: Preface (explanation), and the Poem Tale (episodic narration).No rhyming.
