There are many forms of short poetry that are written today. Most of which can be found on the various social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. There are haiku,senryu,tanka,gogyoshi and sedoka as well as lunes,lanterns and other micropoetry. Some conform to the rules and guidelines of the respective genre others are more free in nature. I have grouped all these forms under the umbrella of Tanshi which means "short poems". For illustration purposes see the image below.
"Tanshi is the umbrella under which all these forms of micro poems are grouped "
When we combine artwork/photography with tanshi we arrive at TanshiArt,in a similar way to haiku and art which gives us haiga.
My aim on this site is to promote creativity and to allow the freedom of expression to be captured using art/photography alongside tanshi to create a new genre,this is TanshiArt.
