Today I presented the Tanka poem to the class and I thought it went pretty well. I think I explained everything clearly and I think everyone understood. Below you will see my Tanka and those of other students who were inspired by my teaching.
A shattered window
To send shivers down my spine
Through a creaky door
Is.there any more to come?
These questions I dare to ask.
Darkness up above
Bright moon with surrounding stars
Bats screeching in trees
Possums running round all night,
Sunrise, possums and bats hide.
The sun shines right down
with rays of heat and sunshine
Rain soon comes around
Wind twirls and whirls through the trees
