a bloom of birdsong
clamors in a cacophony of frogs
a soundtrack to the sunrise
as the moon falls from the sky
Exploring new poetry forms. This is Tanka, a Japanese form with lines that are short, long, short, long, long. Similar to the Haiku, but with two additional lines. You can read some Tanka poems here. Expect more of these – I think they might be as fun to play with as Haiku. 🙂
