I just stumbled upon this challenge sponsored by Elsie in New Zealand, on her blog, Ramblings of a Writer! How exciting. Since I’ve started my own Tanka Challenge how could I resist? You can never have too many Haiku or Tanka Challenges for me. <3
Her requirements are to make the Tanka about game birds. I call this:
The Greater Sage Grouse
feathers spread out in glory,
challenging his foe
to a duel of virtue
fighting to acquire the girl.
Thanks for the invitation, Elsie. See you next week!
