Colleen Chesebro persuaded me to enter her Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge and since I had some photographs from last week’s encounter with a stormy Welsh coastline… I am throwing my hat in the ring. Although it is a Tanka challenge – Haiku
WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?
HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY!
I hope you will support the other poets with visits to blogs and leaving comments. Sharing each other’s work on social media is always nice too.
PLEASE NOTE: This challenge is for Tanka, Haiku, Senryu, Haibun, and Cinquain poetry forms. Freestyle rhyming poetry is not part of this challenge. Thank you. ❤
I will publish the Tuesday prompt post at 12: 03 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Denver Time). That should give everyone time to see the prompt from around the world. The RECAP is published on Monday and will contain links to the participants.
WRITE YOUR POEM ON YOUR BLOG as a post.
You have one week to complete the Challenge with a deadline of Sunday, at 12:00 P.M. (Noon) Denver time, U. S. A.
This will give me a chance to add the links from everyone’s poem post from the previous week, on the Recap I publish on Monday. I urge everyone to visit the blogs and comment on everyone’s poem.
The rules are simple.
I will give you two words. Choose synonyms from those words for your poetry. You, the poet, now have more control over the direction of your writing. Follow the rules carefully. Don’t use the prompt words.
LINK YOUR BLOG POST TO MINE WITH A PINGBACK. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of your URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.
Because of the time difference between where you are, and I am, you might not think your link is there. I manually approve all links. People taking part in the challenge may visit you and comment or “like” your post. I also need at least a Pingback or a link in the comments section to know you took part and to include you in the Weekly Recap published each Monday.
BE CREATIVE. Use your photos and create “Visual POETRY” if you wish, although it is not necessary. Use whatever program you want to make your images.

Here are the TWO prompt words for this week’s challenge: “Fall & Try,” #SynonymsOnly
And here is my haiku..
I hope you will head over and throw your hat into the ring… thanks Sally
