It is that time of the week when our syllables begin to jostle in our minds for a place in Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.. let your syllables out for some fun.. you have until Sunday night should you choose to accept…..
WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?
Here are your two words for this week:
MYSTERY & ATTRACT
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!
For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in one of the forms defined below. Click on the links to learn about each form:
Here are some great sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables
This site even has a link so you install the extension on Google Chrome.
For Synonyms and Antonyms. When your word has too many syllables, find one that works.
Find out how many syllables each word has. I use this site for all my Haiku and Tanka poems. Click on the “Workshop” tab to create your Haiku or Tanka.
