I've written some haikus, but I've never had any thoughts about trying my hand at tanka.... now I do.  This is awesome.

Thank you :) (Smile) Haikus are fun and require less finger counting (which is good for somebody like me that's always sucked at math and has to recount constantly :| (Blank Stare) ), but this pretty much wrote itself, word and syllable wise. I def wish they were all like that.

I'm a bit verbose usually, so haikus are exceptionally hard but that much rewarding (constant finger-counting before writing a word does that.) But I hear ya - there's nothing in this world like something just writing itself and turning out great.
