sweet little pet
grown weary of waiting
what’s this … she growls?
how inviting, the yard next door

and the neighbor, beckoning!

B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond:
Kyoka

A kyoka is similar to a tanka except it can be humorous,  bawdy, satirical … or just surprising.   Even today it’s the “Rodney Dangerfield” of waka … getting no respect!  In fact … it was considered shameful to write!

With a huge “thank you” to The Muscleheaded Blog for providing this image!
