...a Picture This Poem

Do you wanna...

This work's really hard
Let me see how you did it
Your answer looks right
We should do this together
Two heads are better than one


the Tanka form:

Written as a personal or emotional expression of themes such as natural beauty, love, the impermanence of life, the activities of the common people.

Composed with the priority of, "to be touched by things."

Syllabic, 31 or fewer syllables, most commonly 5-7-5-7-7, in variation the lines are best kept with odd-numbered syllables.

Normally but not always a 5-line poem, the 5-line pattern, however, does seem to prevail.

Defined by content and style more than the syllabic prescription. But there is still a pattern of short and long lines rather than a metered equal length.

The center line should be a pivot line, joining the two but also creating two viable pieces into one.

Thanks for reading.
