A Place Like Home
Brittany M. Mytnik
"A Place Like Home" is a collection of poetry in the style of tanka, that I have written in my first semester of college. The derived from the theme of finding a "home" in my tanka, whether external or internal. Throughout our lives, one of our main goals it to feel at home in our surroundings, with peers and lovers and family, and in ourselves. Many, if not all, of my tanka can be seen to reflect some aspect of a quest for "a place like home."
