Weekly Writing Challenge: Full Tanka

The mind plays a tale

Like the currents on a stream

The ripples and curls

A storyline, moves and twists

A legacy that persists

(Traditional tanka contain five lines instead of haiku’s three, and 31 syllables instead of 17. The structure is that of a haiku followed by two additional lines of seven syllables each: 5-7-5-7-7. (Many contemporary poets take liberties with the specifics, and you can, too.)
