Sisters (a tanka)

sisters

sisters share secrets
like short skirts and red lipstick
laughing whispers grin
argue fierce over car keys
kiss and make up on facebook

ABOUT:

For today’s prompt, write a family poem. I’ve actually written a few poems about my family this month already, but you don’t have to restrict yourself to your own family. There are any number of human families, of course, but also animals, insects, and other organisms. Plus, there are “families” of other types as well. As usual, feel free to bend the prompt to your favor.

POETIC FORM: TANKA

I provided info on the Tanka for my Somonka poem, for a refresher, go here: http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides/poetic-forms/tanka-bigger-and-more-relaxed-than-a-haiku
