Tanka Tuesday: Play

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: play.


play once meant something
different when I was young
playing games and sports
getting dirty and skinned knees
I do not miss the skinned knees
