Because Colleen is having trouble with pingbacks, I’m re-blogging her weekly poetry challenge from now on instead of linking to it in my posts. That way, you’ll still be able to join in the fun. If you want her to know you participated, you’ll need to submit the form on her post instead of linking to it on your blog.
There are two advantages to this extra step. When Colleen publishes her weekly recap on Mondays, more traffic will be drawn to your blog. Also, if your work is chosen as poem of the week, it could be published in a collection at the end of the year.
That said, here we go with today’s challenge. You’ll note that the words are “cold” and “storm.” As usual, the idea is to write a poem in a traditional form using synonyms of these words. Good luck, and stay tuned for my poem.
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!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. Please write your poetry in one of the above forms. 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…
