Camouflage – Poem (A Tanka)

Through,  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.
