On an old Neem tree Whose trunk is black and sooty Sits a lone white dove. If only I could repair my wings and fly to find love.

What is a Tanka?
A Tanka is a Japanese form of poetry. It has five lines and thirty-one syllables in 5/7/5/7/7 format, giving a complete picture of an event or mood. It has an ‘upper’ and ‘lower’ element, and a ‘turn’ from the former to the latter.
