I'll believe in hope, Grasping its light in my hands Always, I'll keep on fighting
Sprawling whiskers flare Around a coat of sleek fur Fluffy ears perk up Tiny toe beans trot about Just a few things I adore
A gallery of Harrowing horrors Eagerly awaits
Oh goddess of flame, Set this feeble heart on fire, Bind it to your name
For today, I have two slightly different versions of the same poem! The first version is a haiku, while the second is a tanka poem. As such, they are of differing length, and phrases/words have been added and rearranged in each poem. However, I wrote both based on the same theme and ideas.
