Help for a haiku

Stuck in a Haiku?
Feel that you’ve nowhere to go?
Why not try Tanka?
Two extra lines to play with
and thirty-one syllables

Inspired by a blog posting on 30 July from ‘The Reluctant Poet

Both ‘haiku’ and ‘tanka’ are Japanese poetry forms. Haiku comprises three lines with a syllabic sequence of 5,7,5; Tanka comprises five lines with a syllabic sequence of 5,7,5,7,7
