Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We have started with our adventure ... exploring the beauty of Tanka through the "Ten Tanka Writing Techniques" by Teika. Yesterday I shared his first Tanka Writing technique "Mystery and Depth" and today I love to challenge you to create a tanka inspired on Mist by using this first Tanka Writing Technique.
A few days ago it was Halloween, so I thought maybe I have to try to catch this "mystery and depth" in a tanka themed Halloween ... sounds great doesn't it? So here is my response on this prompt mist with the following tanka:
white witches dancing on the heath
just tendrils of mist
scaring little children
"the boogie-man comes!"
|White Bitches (In Dutch: Witte Wieven) this is how we call this kind of mist on the heath|
Your tanka is evocative, mysterious, reminds me a touch of one of your finest haiku years ago. The word bitches is very very strong in English. Perhaps witches?ReplyDelete
Oh, your tanka is intriguing. Thanks for another day of prompts. You are the best!ReplyDelete
