Tanka # 1: Sickly sweet

I find in boxes

Old wanted things from my past

Though never needed

I somehow need to keep them

Though they’re somehow sickly sweet

 


A Tanka (5/7/5/7/7) is a traditional style of Japanese poetry containing only three lines. It’s quite a well-known poetic genre in the Japanese poetry  quite similar to haiku, but with a few important differences. Tanka usually expresses a mood, thought, or feeling.
