Rain falls in the night – tanka for dVerse

Night rain

I had forgotten

your voice

yet here you are

like an old friend

A tanka for Frank, who is hosting at dVerse tonight. We are celebrating National Tanka Month, and looking at 3 Japanese 5 line forms. Frank gives a straightforward explanation on his dVerse post. I’ve written many haiku, but this is my first tanka.

  1. ‘Hello darkness (night rain) my old friend…’ It’s a comfort when it rains at night, to know that everything will be fresh and ready to start again in the morning. I LOVE this!
