Tanka & Peace
Heather R. Burgess
As a young girl, writing was my only means of releasing pain. Poetry soon became my art outlet away from home life. Then I quit writing for a long time. At Millikin I chose to take the Tanka Writing Roundtable class even though I knew nothing about tanka. I have learned a formal way of writing short poetry. I learned better expression by using feelings and the scenary around me.
