Tanaga – Betrayed

Tongue tied behind your pearl teeth,

I plucked roses from the wreath

of flowers wrapped round my arms

now wilted much like your charms.

Tonight I’m combining the Daily Post Prompt Betrayed and dVerse Thursday night ‘Meet The Bar’ prompt to write a Tanaga.

A Tanaga is a poem with four lines per stanza, and seven syllables per line. This is my attempt at writing a short Tanaga to get myself back in the poetry mood before April arrives with all the madness of NaPoWriMo.

  1. I like the “teeth” and “wreath” rhymes. Good description using the wreath to bind the arms with wilted roses that one has to pick away. Nice tanaga!
