Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
An ekphrastic tanka
"Tanka(garden arenas)" by Pamusart
garden arenas
hosted mantis dance contests
for millions of years
insects perfected the twist
eons before we found it

Recognized

Author Notes
This is the fifth painting in my Natures Dancers series. Male mantii sance like this when fighting or trying to attract a mate. It exposes the insides of their lovely wings. It looks like they are dancing the twist. The painting is called The Mantis Twist. They have been doing the twist for almost 200 million years, and, we humans think we invented it. Hah! Not!

Thank you for reading my poem
