The journey of life
Present to unknown future
Never a straight line.
Forks to choose and curves to turn.
Surprise in the horizon.
The tanka is a thirty-one-syllable poem, traditionally written in a single unbroken line. A form of waka, Japanese song or verse, tanka translates as “short song,” and is better known in its five-line, 5/7/5/7/7 syllable count form.

Along a straight road
But that is not the case
Forks and turnings on the road
Make us think and take decisions
At that moment we believe in them
Right or wrong, we come to know much later.
