Tanka

Poem #5 for the NaPoWriMo challenge.  (Still playing catch up!)  Inspiration for this poem comes from NaPoWriMo site.  A tanka is a syllable based five line poem (5, 7, 5, 7, 7).  It originated in Japan.  Another great thing about martial arts and poetry is learning about other cultures.

tucked chins, fighting stance
check step, low block, middle punch,
multiple head shots
every moment we practice
showing how much I love you
