Sing a Song of Fishies

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

The writing prompt this week at One Single Impression is MELODY, suggested by Barb at WillThink4Wine. The poetic form which Barb employed is called TANKA, and is written as follows:

  1. Line 1: 5 syllables
  2. Line 2: 7 syllables
  3. Line 3: 5 syllables
  4. Line 4: 7 syllables
  5. Line 5: 7 syllables

I’m going to give Tanka a try as well, using the prompt, MELODY:

We think it’s funny

How much Dad loves his fishpond.

Takes umpteen photos

Spring, summer, autumn, winter;

Our laughter, a melody.
