Digital Haiku and Tanka Series

Author's Note: This is the first of a 24 part series of haiku and tanka poetry that is dedicated to each of the twelve digidestined from Adventure and Adventure 02. Each one will get a chapter of ten haikus and ten tankas written about them. There will be romance, humor, mystery, tragedy and every possible genre imaginable for this project. For those who don't know, a haiku is a three line, seventeen syllable poem originated in Japan. The syllables in haiku break down as 5-7-5. A tanka is a five line, thirty-one syllable poem that also originated in Japan. The syllables in a tanka break down as 5-7-5/7-7.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Digimon Adventure or 02 and make no profits from these poems. They're just for fun!
