Tanka (Japanese for "short poem") is a genre of classical Japanese poetry and one of the major genres of Japanese literature. Usually consists of five unrhymed lines of five, seven, five, seven, and seven syllables (5-7-5-7-7)
Here is a Tanka poem! Well I said before about the Tanka poem, 5 lines long with syllable pattern 5-7-5-7-7
Dedicated to father of nation, respected; Mahatma Gandhi. Here is a tribute from me, in the form of a Tanka poem! Your presence did matter a lot, and your impact is deeper! We all respect you and greatful to whatever you did for the peace! ---------------------------------------
DIAMOND OF VIVID MEMORIAL
Like vivid sunrise, You portrayed just ; for nation, Force brings no aye peace! Your inane on humane path; prudent words can't even fill!
iamjass@rasiika yes, I do agree with you ❤️ Different people and different perspectives.. It's the way of thinking that will ultimately tell you everything.. A person can't be scent percent good..ultimate perfection doesn't exist.. So critics will be there for the imperfections.. But we must not forget to be thankful to him for his good deeds.. ❤️
Thank you so much for sharing this.. Repost is truly appreciated ❤️
atinderl@rasiika theres one book published in 2012 named Gandhi:naked ambition ...plz do read it ..and moreover there are several statements by highly qualified linguals of that time who mentioned him as sex maniac ..moreover it is said that if Gandhi was not there for India then we must have got our independence many years back rather in 1947...not only these there are tonnes of real life stories of Gandhi mentioned in several books and even on internet..and i was shocked that we call him as the father of nation ..his ashrams permitted boys and girls to bathe together and sleep together , he even molested one of the sister of his coworker..anyways he was not less than the present day ram Rahim lols
rasiika@atinderl as I already mentioned in my comment that I don't know much but I liked and agreed to whatever I read about him like he was a supporter of peace and truth.. I will take your comment under consideration though and will read more about him as I respect your opinion
alpha_What you have written is a TANKA, not precisely a HAIKU, Tanka has 5 lines and 31 syllables. You tried very well. The syllables are also approximately correct and fit. . Bro, you don't need anyone to rectify you or improve your writing skills, you will gradually, evolve with time. . Do not rush into things, take your time, love your work, and trust me, you're gonna rock.
rockingneerThanks for your help and support brother. Really I appreciate. And yes I'm gonna keep on it as always. And I do believe that I'll become more better in my evolution process, than I am now. Yes I will! With love... Peace! #beconnected ❤✌
iamjass@ericwk pleasure is all mine dear sir and the Tanka it's really awesome.. Just blended with pure feelings.. It's always a delight to go through your writeups.. Have a nice time ahead, sir
ericwk@iamjass Thank you. I feel it is sort of ordinary. Yet I felt it had to be expressed. If it has warmed someone else. I'm blessed. To have set it to a Tanka phrase was to tame it into the brief moment of feelings so fleeting. Next time around? We shall see.
