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!

and Doctors like the Klitschkos

with no knockout punch


More college degrees

than dates- that described Joe

until last month with her


She was a nurse, he

an army surgeon. They met

on love's battleground


Sunrise, and the light

tickles my fancy, much like

our leader's young sis


Sincerely Joe and

it is good to know, she gets
