Tanka Poem: The Sorrowful Night

in #poetry2 years ago



"The Sorrowful Night"

The swirling mist

Covering the dark street

The sorrowful night

Why does it feels so chilly?

Maybe it wanted some warmth?



The Japanese tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as "short song," and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form.

How sorrowful and deep. I can imagine the loneliness of the person in the poem.
