The Church in Cassone (Landscape with Cypress)
dawn finds the graveyard
skylarks bathe in puddled tombs
sipping lost refrains
there stands the silent cypress
rooted and rising the song
The above is a tanka. For more on this Japanese poem form I recommend this introduction from the AHA Poetry site. I am linking this post at the current One Stop Poetry Form post, where you can read more haiku and tanka poems by other participants by clicking here.
