A chapter in the book One Thousand Cranes

Dark Evening

by Gypsy Blue Rose

Cinquain Tanka Contest Winner 

for cinquain-tanka new contest

In this dark evening,
      even moonflowers
      hide from summer rain,
lulled by creek’s whispers, 
      and heron’s roh-rohs.



Cinquain Tanka
Contest Winner

-- The personification of moonflowers is allowed with Cinquain Tanka

-- Moonflower is a night-blooming flower

--Herons, during breeding, greet their partner with squawking roh-roh-rohs when arriving at the nest.

CINQUAIN-TANKA is a combination of a cinquain poem and a tanka. It's written using 5 lines with 5 syllables on each line. "Cinq" is French for the number 5. Tanka is a Japanese poem with five lines too. I created this new poem form. It never rhymes. You can use any subject.

Line one: 5 syllables
Line two: 5 syllables
Line tree: 5 syllables
Line four: 5 syllables
Line five: 5 syllables

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and review my poem.
