River’s Call – Gogyohka Poem

Weekly Tanka Prompt Poetry Challenge Wk #109 – Mystery & Pondering

Use the weekly poetry prompt “mystery & pondering”  to write a poem – any form, your choice, also please feel free to substitute these prompt words with a “synonym”.

A Gogyohka Poem is modern way of writing a Tanka poem.  Gogyohka is a new form of poetry which has been developed in Japan. Gogyohka simply means verse which is written in five lines, but each line generally represents one phrase and has a different feel to five-line verse commonly found in Western poetry.  You can find more detailed information at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

Ne’er Forgotten

Frank J. Tassone Haikai Challenge #46 – Fire

US-FIRE-CALIFORNIA

power of fire
the battle lost by some men
many tears are wept

the cries of the mountain’s scorch
and the trees that stand no more

as it rages on
homes, victims of its wrath
souls, unsure, displaced

let tears be prayers to heaven
a greater force than fire

man now humbled low
to appreciate what’s gone
let memory stand

spirits rise from burned bodies
may they ne’er be forgotten

Breathless

Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #45 – Gogyohka, a modern way of writing/creating Tanka

Gogyohka is a new form of poetry which has been developed in Japan. Gogyohka simply means verse which is written in five lines, but each line generally represents one phrase and has a different feel to five-line verse commonly found in Western poetry.  Traditional Tanka is based on a 5,7,5,7,7 syllable pattern. For languages such as English, however, it is difficult to compose verse within these restraints. Non-Japanese Tanka is, therefore, written freely in five lines, like Gogyohka. That is to say, Gogyohka is already being written internationally in the form of Tanka.

Breathless

when I look
into your eyes
light
beholds me
breathless

Promise #226:
If you rest in Me and wait patiently, you will inherit the land.

Psalm 37:7-9 (WEB)
7 Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for him. Don’t fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who makes wicked plots happen. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath. Don’t fret, it leads only to evildoing. 9 For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for Yahweh shall inherit the land.
