Best Tanka Poems

2-BORGIA

behind the happy mask
are my tears, my lonliness
i wish i could remove it,
the mask and sadness inside
but i'm afraid to stop the show

Brigole, 2-Borgia

Raindrops accompanied me
As you walked away from me.
Just a few minutes
the dark alley was empty
just like the way you left me.

Castor, 2-Borgia

Sun shining brightly
As the leaves dance with the wind
I stand, smiling like a sunflower
Rain or shine, I remain joyful
At the beautiful green field

Mantilla, 2-Borgia

Addicted to her
I never thought I will be.
The weakness in your eyes
Those tears rundown my face
The moment you walked away

Ong, 2-Borgia

I wander in a crowded place
Searching for someone
Further I walk,
I have found my long lost friend...
There, standing at a mirror.

Dumlao, 2-Borgia

I heard the thunder
It frightened my soul within
Made me feel afraid
But the cold wind hugged me tight
And I felt it comforted me tonight

Carorocan, 2-Borgia

Sitting on a bench
feeling alone in this world
no friend to listen
Chirp! A bird sat on the porch
A new friend was there with me

Guadalupe, 2-Borgia

seeing you alone,
blankly staring up ahead.
not a single smile you've shown
and not a single word said,
just silence and nothing more.

Naranjo, 2-Borgia

Like a pendulum
I break free and swing away
It keeps coming back
Three autumns already passed
Back and forth, I'm still swinging

Baltazar, 2-Borgia

A small pretty bird
Afraid to fly by itself
For it's wings cannot
It can only wish for a flight
So high , so light without fright

Angeles, 2-Borgia

Like the sun rising
her smile is never fading
dusk starts to break in
now as she lay down to sleep
sorrow hugs her entire world

Wong

2-CANISIUS

butterflies flutter
all day , up and down
resting on top of flowers
flapping its wings
bidding goodbye to the flower

Espiritu, 2-Canisius

As the candle light flickers
I was lost in delirium
As its fire gently dies down
I was consumed by despair
Trapped in my own senseless mind

Angeles, 2-Canisius

Falling peacefully
snow lie on the tree's shoulders
coldness of winter
leaves to prepare for a new
it will leave with spring wind

Shin, 2-Canisius

Moonlight meets the sea
And waves greet the peacefull shore
Lull the sands to sleep
I have yet to see such peace
Have you seen serenity?

Yoshida, 2-Canisius

Sadly I open
The door with hesitation
Anticipating
The hard cold wind as
I say my goodbye

Agor

2-FAVRE

A girl that's gleaming
in the mirror I see her
staring back at me
as I open my eyes wide
I see myself before me.

Tabuga, 2-Favre

Tick-Tock!! Oh Time!
I spend you like a Dime
You're a valuable that cannot be mine
Without you, my mind will blow away
But with you, I stay

Deduyo, 2-Favre

Sun shines so brightly
Rippled water silenced, still
warmth, serenity
Silence is here within me
But still, I feel emptiness.

Ceniza, 2-Favre

I saw shooting star
In the middle of the night
Wishing a good life
I was lonely with my shadow
Following me wherever I go

Ruiz, 2-Favre

I lay on the grass
staring at the stars shining
thinking to myself,
how small I am in this world
compared to the galaxy I see.

Grageda

2-DE BRITO

Walking slowly away
Loneliness is my company
Feels the emptiness
As coldness greets me back home
And the image of you gone.

Bonleon, 2-De Brito

a Sakura tree
In the middle of a pond
something took my eyes
I saw the sadness' diguise
of a trees's dead wilted leaf

Avillon, 2-De Brito

Walking by the sea
as the wind touches my skin
cool breeze passed by
the Sadness made me shiver
as the warmth of drops overflowed

Comia, 2-De Brito

A diamond dewdrop
Twinkles with morning sunlight
Then gently drips down
The rose's green stem
To care for thirsty roots

Carpio, 2-De Brito

Walking through the shoreline
Washed by the ripples
Of past failures as it flashes through
Memories of her run by
As birds soar up high

Llanes, 2-De Brito

There, a swaying tree
Where leaves fall from its branches
There I sit lonely
Waiting for someone to come
That will give me company

Pacheco, 2-De Brito

I feel the rhythm
of leaves flappin' each other
as the wind pass by
it disturbed the loneliness
awakening my pain

Holland, 2-De Brito

Walking by the street
I see a rock still and calm
How i wish i could be
To be as stiff and still as
The cold hard rock on the street

Yap, 2-De Brito

There I was Sitting
watching birds in the sky
waiting for darkness
to cover my loneliness
after I'll go home and cry

Delos Santos, 2-De Brito


2-REGIS

The night grasps me,
By the sadness that I feel,
Faking smile,
I hid the feeling in me,
As tears appeared, it was freed.

Manabit, 2-Regis

The feeling creeping
Has always been there waiting
The cold setting in
Making it so much harder
To resist the lethargy

Manulid, 2-Regis

I saw a couple
looking and smiling at me
in the green meadows
but sadness came into mind
they were just in a portrait

Calugcug, 2-Regis

I sit here waiting,
Waiting for it to appear.
Locked in a dark room,
There is only one window,
Where I saw the sun Rising.

Porticos, 2-Regis

the pure red roses
in both our gardens
i praise mine
more than my neighbor's
though they look the same

Roque, 2-Regis

Sceams I hear from town,
In the darkness of the night,
Nightmares hover dreams,
Where fear and loneliness reign,
Children waking up from fear.

Icalina, 2-Regis

Silently I stand,
Trying hard to stop my tears,
Now i reminisce,
The bitter-sweet memories,
To strengthen my heart and soul.

Gutierrez, 2-Regis

Curling up so small
Blocking out the roaring sound
Eyes shut, hands on ears
Clamped up tightly like a shell
From the thunderstorm outside

Yem, 2-Regis

At that one moment
I saw a seed from the sky
Cradled in its shell
Fear had rendered me frozen
As a gray mushroom took lives

Paglas, 2-Regis
