May Snow — a tanka


Snowflakes in the air
Hit the ground and disappear
For gosh sakes, it’s May!
Did they miss the spring memo?
Most unwelcome visitors

Trying not to feel bitter about their presence.

Working my way through the poetic forms in A Kick in the Head. Today, a tanka — syllable count 5-7-5-7-7

  1. I LOVE your site. So glad a stumbled across it through daily prompts. I, too, am a mom who recently decided to try poetry. I’m not good, but I’m learning. We had snow here in Wisconsin 2 weeks back, in April. I can’t imagine the gut punch snow would be today. I want to ask where you are that you got snow, but I don’t want to pry…?
