  1. Oh, Raivenne. How much do you rock! First, thank you for the dedication … and then thank you for the challenge. But most of all, thank you for the most excellent poem!! When I first started reading your post, I was thinking “double tanka,” two stanzas, one tanka each. Not that that wouldn’t have been impressive, but this … whoa. “sweetness set ablaze, texture on my tongue … so gorgeous.

    Thank you!

  2. I could totally see how each stanza worked alone and then how when brought together there was just so much more. Oh the sweetness in the poem is amazingly making me want that dessert. I think I have had it once and it was so good. It is not really offered at the places I eat, probably not allowed at most of them due to the flames.

    Thanks so much for explaining to us about Tanka and a Super-Tanka.

    God bless..

  3. clever – and the sounds were fun.
    And the desert — delicious — thank you.
    I’d love to see you pull that off with contrary ideas — here they were the same.
    I am a novice — but I tried a similar thing with the nasty shield bugs that came out 2 weeks ago to your “super tantra” (thanx for the poetry lesson!).

So? What do you think?
