Tanka #8

Dawn breaks in the east.
From the tall oak in the woods,
owl’s too-wit too-woo;
such a homely sound to me,
but to the mouse a terror.

    1. Must be my “pretend sun” Vitamin D capsules the doctor told me to take. Normally I’m a gloomy old whatsit at this time of the year, which reduces my writing output.

      Glad you like the Tanka. Why don’t you have a go writing one?


      1. I think I have some tanka somewhere – however the main written form I am working in at the moment is the CV – it is a kind of un-rhymed prose form. Two sides long.
