  1. A lovely poem, my friend. Remember to follow the 5/7/5/7/7 syllables for each line in order for it to be a Tanka. Here is a site I tell you about in each of my posts that will count the syllables for you: Click on the workshop tab and type your Tanka onto the page and click the button at the bottom to get the syllable count. ❀

    1. Thank you for the suggestions.
      Yes I messed up with the syllable count. I actually went to that site mentioned in your post and got my syllable count checked even before publishing this post but What happened is that if I stuck to syllable count l fell short of expressing my feelings through my poem. Sooo…πŸ˜‘ I know the syllable count is really important for a Tanka Poem. I will try to stick to the next time.

      1. Try and use the thesaurus to find words that convey your feelings with less syllables. If you read today’s prompt post, I give detailed instructions on how to write a Tanka. That should help you. Keep going… you’re so close. ❀
