Tanka Tuesday: The Lake

It's time for the next installment of Tanka Tuesday!

Tanka is a form of poetry similar to haiku. It's short, and the lines don't need to rhyme. The just must have a set number of syllables: 5/7/5/7/7.

For more about tanka, see the original post here.

Today's tanka prompt is: Lakes (or as we say here in Minnesota, 'the lake,' as if we didn't have another one every 10 feet.)


so close to the lake
a fifteen minute drive there
we rarely get to go
tradition is Mackie's first
and Shaw's Ice Cream is last stop
