This was my attempt at what’s called “tanka prose.” Tanka prose is prose with tanka, Japanese-style five-line poems normally of 31 syllables or less (I didn’t count!).
This was my August 31, 2012 poem for the postcard poetry project. I used an antique card view of an Orca (“Killer Whale”) off the Washington State coast. I mailed the card to Jan of Vancouver, Washington.
Blessings to Jan and all, Andy
I’m smiling at the image of the bicycle in your kitchen. (That must make it difficult to make COFFEE!)
You are *so* on to me. Yes, with the bicycle in the kitchen it WAS difficult to make COFFEE!
So, I rode it to a bicycle charity in town and donated it. Yaayyy!
Blessings to you and yours, Andy
