Best Answer

A Western (English) tanka is a form of poetry, similar to haiku. While the traditional Japanese tanka consists of 5 lines, with lines 1 and 3 having 5 syllables while the others have 7, syllables don't matter in a Western tanka. They are just supposed to be 5 lines, usually using nature imagery.
