Tanka are well-grounded in concrete images yet infused with lyric intensity, with an intimacy from direct expression of emotions tempered with implication, suggestion, and nuance. You can cover almost any subject, explicitly expressing your direct thoughts and feelings.

sometimes
before falling in love
with my wife
again and again
the cries of swifts

a small death
the cracked shell
of a snail
now this delay
at the train station
