Lunchtime Tanka

Looking for something more than a haiku, I stumbled upon the Japanese poetic form “tanka.” It’s similar to a haiku in that the number of lines and their syllables are precisely delineated. For additional information on tanka, please see this link.

Summertime Weather

Vivid cobalt skies

With angry clouds o’ertaking

Boom, thunder echoes

Jagged lightning flashes close

Rain waters cleanse Mother Earth
