Fighting pollution (Tanka Poems)

Tanka poems are short, poems with only 31 syllables that go like this:
The first line has 5 syllables,
The second line has 7 syllables
The third line has 5 syllables,
And the fourth and fifth lines both have 7 syllables.

I just wrote a small poem (tanka) about spring and how it is trying to cure and save the air pollution. However nature is not strong enough because we are damaging the air.

Fighting pollution

In Beautiful Spring
All new flowers burst and bloom
The endangered air
Must have nature to survive
Or it will fade, like we will

    wandering through, and you are dancing in spring still — happy to see… and something new to try, too many thanks

  22. Windowlad says:

    Oh, that was a pretty good Tanka Marinela… it seems like you enjoyed your attempt on it… try Tanaga and Haiku as well… you’re surely love them as much as i did…!!!:) wait, i think you’ve missed the last line… it has only 6 instead of 7 syllables… anyhow, you can choose to have it a contemporary and forget ’bout the meter…!!!:D

    Good day!!!:)

    God Bless!!!:)

    Hi Marinela!
    Thanks for your comment on my blog:)
    I like your Tanka.
    You know,Tanka is from Japan.
    We used to learn it and try to make it at school:)
    you can’t use a lot word. So we have to chose which word we use.
    That’s why Tanka is beautiful.
