WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
This week, I’m looking for Haibun (Prose & Haiku) and Tanka Prose (Prose and Tanka) to use as examples in my book. I’m also going through your blogs and leaving you messages of poetry that I’d like to share in the book. As always, you retain all rights to your work and I give you credit in the Bibliography. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don’t answer you right away, please don’t panic. I’ll get to all the emails as I continue to compile the examples. Thanks so much for your help.
Here are your two words selected by Ruth Scribbles, from last month’s #SyllablesOnly challenge:
COMFORT & WORN
On the Monday before the next challenge, I will pick my favorite poem from the #SynonymsOnly challenge and share it on my blog. Whoever I pick will choose the syllables for next month’s challenge!
PLEASE support the other poets by visiting blogs and leaving comments. Peer reviews help poets perfect their writing craft. Remember… sharing is caring.
For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in the forms defined on the Poetry Challenge Cheatsheet:
Here are some great sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables
This site even has a link so you can 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 to compose my poems. Click on the “Workshop” tab, then cut and paste your poetry into the box. Click the Count Syllables button on the button. This site does the hard work for you.
Every Tuesday I’ll post the challenge early enough so everyone can see it. Remember, there will be no recap. You have a full week to complete your poetry. Write your poetry for yourself and don’t forget to have fun.
The rules are simple. Write your poetry on your blog.
Do a link-back by copying the HTTPS:// address of the challenge post and pasting it in your post. Also, please copy your poem and add it to the comments. If you created a Haiga, let us know in the comments with a link to your post. Now, all of the poetry ends up on the challenge post in one place.
Follow the schedule listed below:
I will visit your blog, comment, and TWEET your POETRY.
If you add these hashtags to the post TITLE on your blog (depending on which poetry form you use) your poetry may be viewed more often on Twitter:
