Camouflage – Poem (A Tanka)

Through,Β  Annie, I learned a new form of Poetry: a Tanka. It is a classical Japanese poetry containing five lines with 5-7-5-7-7 syllables in each line respectively.

I decided to take a shot at it for the prompt today: Camouflage.

When I am unseen
I feel safe in the darkness
Full of prejudice
Camouflage is the color
of my skin. My cover-up.

  1. Beautiful, brilliant Tanka!! “Full of prejudice” gives it a more mysterious feeling. The picture goes very well with it, too. Did you know I had to look at the image twice before realising what I’m seeing? πŸ˜€
    Well done, I love this and look forward to reading more of your work! πŸ™‚
