    Write a tanka poem.

    Tanka is a classic form of Japanese poetry related to the haiku with five unrhymed lines of five, seven, five, seven, and seven syllables. (5, 7, 5, 7, 7)

    It should be related to nature and natural things.

    Subtle hints of spring
    In the wet bark of the tree
    Dew dripping from leaves
    Then runs down the russet trunk
    Pools round the roots and is drunk
