Butterflies and Astars

Hey all!I’m back with my first set of tankas, titled “Butterflies and Astars”. Enjoy!

Larvae hatch from eggs,
Caterpillars weave cocoons,
The cycle of life;
Complete when butterflies soar,
A flamboyant piece of art!

Asters in full bloom,
Extend their hands in welcome,
Nature’s attendants,
Their services requited
With a brew of fantasy.

-The Forgers of Fantasy

The Tanka:
The tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as “short song,” and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form.
