Discovery – (Tanka Tuesday #231)

Try every which way;

Be forever curious;

Leave no stone unturned –

You’ll never know what you’ll find,

In your search for a breakthrough.

Poem prompted by Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge #231. This weeks theme “Discovery”. Click through on the link if you, too, would like to join in.


  1. What a lovely tanka! Remember, in Japanese poetry we don’t capitalize the first letter in each line. I love the pivot: “Leave no stone unturned.” It really speaks to the act of discovery. Well done. ❤
