Camp NaNoWriMo – 24th

Caught

Slowly unfurling
Tendrils entwining softly
Web clings and fastens
Escape is impossible
I will be forever yours

Waka

The waka is a Japanese 5-line poem (or stanza) that is often considered synonymous with the tanka, because both have a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable per line structure. However, the waka groups its lines together in a particular way. The first 2 lines should make up one piece, the next 2 lines should make the next, and then, the final line can stand on its own–or as part of the second group.

It’s possible to end stop after line 2, 4, and 5. But other forms of punctuation can do the trick as well.
