the lips fall silent
fingers fly across the keys
the tongue-tied typist
editing feelings at whim
for a muted audience

but the title...."tanka"...

its meaning...?

i am fairly certain that in conventional haiku, there are no titles. i'm unsure about tanka, but i've decided to go sans titles, just for simplicity's sake. here's an earlier post that describes the traditional format for a tanka.

hope this helps.
