A tanka is a Japanese verse form in five lines, the first and third of five syllables and the rest of seven.
I invite anyone and everyone to pull out the dictionary and/or a thesaurus, study or exercise some English to put to work at the Americanized tanka form of poetry here!
What say we have some fun with this challenge?


 



Haloes trap us
rocking embodied star-shine
effete gravity
draws into many zeroes
heavens woven of our hearts

&

Haloes trap our
rocking disembodiment
heathery lift-off
embeds bedazzlement b'low
supervenient scores
