Tanka and Haiku

I recently read another blogger’s writings and was impressed with their poetic abilities.  I also took note of the various forms of poetry they created.  Many of which I was unfamiliar with, which isn’t odd considering I have only worked in a couple of forms.  So I am making an effort to expand into other forms of poetry.  The first one below is my rough attempt at a Tanka, and the second one is another Haiku.

Lost deep in my thoughts,
In search of inspiration,
I pick up my pen,
And transfer the images,
To the paper before me.

Always she loved me.
I weep and place the flowers.
Rest in peace mother.
