Tanka Tuesday :: Illusion

haiga poem

This week Tanka Tuesday is a little bit silly. Colleen wants that we create our own poetry form! We should combine our favourite form with another one of our choice. And we must give a name to it!

I took this photo a few weeks ago, the foggy was dense when I started my walk and little by little it started to dissipate. It was a wonderful early morning and I knew I would write a poem about it.

I’m combining my favourite form, Haiga (Haiku + photography), with Choka (5 + 7 )n + 7 + 7 lines at the end. I’m naming my new poetry form Choiga!

a foggy morning
the fantasy meets the sky
the answer is there
ever out of reach
blending in one split second
balance is missing
transforming gloom into hope
stop the invasion
the past dissipates away
hallucination
words without any meaning
as the summer days go by

I hope you like my creativity! πŸ™‚

  1. Wow, Elizabeth! I’m impressed. My mind goes haywire when I think about getting even more creative with forms of poetry than the forms themselves. Good for you! Great photo, too. πŸ™‚
