Hail Poetry!

I am the tanka.
The attention of others
Is unnerving, and
Since I try not to draw it,
I'm left alone. Which is good.
What Poetry Form Are You?

I hadn't even heard of the tanka before. defines it as a "Japanese verse form in five lines, the first and third composed of five syllables and the rest of seven." It is very true that I try not to draw the attention of others.
