Well… a wonderful surprise this morning to find that I am poet of the week in Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge… I have been participating for the last few months and it has revived my love of poetry, not just writing but reading all the wonderful submissions each week… thank you Colleen.
Welcome to the Tanka Tuesday Poetry Recap featuring the work of poets from around the globe. If you would like to participate in this challenge, you can learn the rules in the menu item called Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Guidelines.
PLEASE NOTE: Don’t forget to count your syllables. Use this site: howmanysyllables.com. Click on the workshop tab. Then, copy and paste your poem into the box, and click “count syllables” at the bottom.
The Poet of the Week will be published in the 2019 Poet of the Week Anthology, which everyone will be able to grab as a PDF in January 2020.
