Full Tanka: I Walk

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_writing_challenge/full-tanka/

Traditional tanka contain five lines instead of haiku’s three, and 31 syllables instead of 17. The structure is that of a haiku followed by two additional lines of seven syllables each: 5-7-5-7-7.

 

What glory in fields

And delight in child blue sky.

What wonder in sun

And wind fresh from distant sea.

I walk from troubles to peace.
