Share your inspired haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form with us all here at our Haiku Kai, use the link at the top.

For writers who find haiku too plain and lacking in emotion, the tanka is a great way to express feelings and let your love live. The trick is to not sound sentimental and this is usually done by anchoring the thought in the reality of the natural world.
