WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry? WAIT!
Make sure you read all of the instructions!
Here are your two prompt words: “Begin & Fresh”
HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words. ❤
PLEASE support the other poets by visiting their blogs and leaving comments. Sharing each other’s work on social media is always nice too.
This challenge is for Tanka, Haiku, Senryu, Haibun, Etheree, Nonet, Shadorma, and Cinquain poetry forms. Freestyle rhyming poetry is not part of this challenge. Thank you. ❤
Please note: We are all students of poetry. I have given you the instructions on how to write the different forms. Try your best to be as exact as you can. There are no tests, and I don’t grade your work. LOL!
I sponsor this challenge to help poets learn how to write various forms of syllabic poetry. Remember, if you are sending your poetry for publication to literary journals, contests, or self-publishing, you should know the correct forms and use them.
Head over and check it out.. and see you in the recap.
