kyoka (witches and warlocks)

by dejohnsrld (Debbie)

witches and warlocks
stir cauldron of bubbling brew
you're invited to
simmer for a while
then a tasty morsel you’ll be



Kyoka are a Japanese form recently introduced to the US in 2006. The structure is the same as tanka-5 lines with 31 or fewer syllables. They are a parody of the more traditional tanka. They are supposed to be humorous and/or ironic. I wrote several Halloween ones which have been accepted by a literary journal for publication in 2014.
