Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 121, “Slow & Work,” #SynonymsOnly

Here’s Colleen Chesebro’s poetry challenge for this week. Her words are “slow” and “work,” and the idea is to write a traditional-form poem using only synonyms of these words. If you participate, please be sure to complete the form on her post so she can link to your post next week in her update. Good luck, and stay tuned for my response.

Word Craft: Prose & Poetry

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?

Here’syourtwowordsforthisweek:SLOW&WORK

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. ❤

Noted

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…
