WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
It’s the third week of the month! Time for a #PhotoPrompt
Padre, from Padre’s Ramblings, provided the photo for this month’s challenge. What does this photo say to you? Write some syllabic poetry and tell me what you think. Make sure to give Padre credit for the use of his photo.
On the Monday before the next challenge, I’ll pick a poem from this week’s challenge and share it on my blog. Whoever I pick will choose the photo for next month’s challenge! Then, all you have to do is to mail your selection to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have fun!
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 (click the link below):
Poetry Form 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.
The rules are simple. Write your poetry on your blog.
Do a link-back by placing the HTTPS:// address of the challenge post into 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:
#Haiku, #Senryu, #Haiga, #Gogyohka, #Tanka, #micropoetry, #poetry, #5lines, #Haibun, #Prose, #CinquainPoetry, #Etheree, #Nonet, #Shadorma, #TankaProse

A Friday evening
Friends gathered all together
The past week’s events rehashed
As new memories are made
Oh, nice! I saw a party with friends too. ❤️❤️❤️
Trying to visit blogs Sis. I am by no means up to the challenge this week, but I will say – fantastic prompt. I may have written something about Italian wine bottles piling up in people’s homes there who are under lockdown. ❤
You show up as “someone.” Not for sure who this is. 🤔
Memories – haibun. https://scvincent.com/2020/03/18/memories-4/
This picture dredged up a few good memories.
Here is my entry for this week. I feel downright early this week😄
chaos came to pass
funky, monkey business strive
that’s how we got here!
a mass reversal needed
I’m going to need more wine!!
LOL! Right? I couldn’t agree with you more. LOL! Well done. ❤
This is so funny! My niece has been posting pictures of her now-homebound children doing their schoolwork (or not). She ends each post with, Need more wine!
That is funny! I hope that whole thing is of short duration😊
So do I! But it’s not looking that way at the moment, unfortunately.
LOL! I can only imagine. 😂
More wine indeed 🙂
Thank you for running the challenge.
Here’s my take :-
Thank you all for stopping by and reading.
Evening hush light breeze
Hesitatingly slids door
Somewhere in the crowd head turns
No time to lose the suspect.
Poetry form :- Tanka
LOL! Great take on the image of “party” supplies. 😀
Thank you very much, Colleen. 🙂
You’re welcome ❤️
Here’s a haiku
to our fears?–
drowning pain with spirit
voices that echo and join
each other in chorused silence
broken like the bread we wish to share
Oh, this is so perfect, Kerfe. I feel that way too! ❤
Happy Friday, Sis! Thanks for another fun poetry challenge!
Have a calm, safe and happy weekend! ❤
Thanks, Sis. We’ve been painting the inside of the house. It’s been exhausting, but it keeps my me busy. Hope all is well with you. Stay safe. ❤
Home projects are a great way to keep our minds off the chaos out there. My husband and I have been doing some long overdue projects inside and outside our house, as well. We’re doing fine so far. Of course, we’re taking every precaution to stay healthy. I’m happy you’re safe. Continue to take good care of yourself, and have a fabulous new week. ❤ xo
Thanks. The same to you as well, Vashti-sis. ❤
Hi Colleen, a tanka for this week, took me a while but I got it.
Opal casks of wine
succulent with mysteries
red and white delights
piquant berries adorn you
embellished dry-sweet pleasures
Ohhh, this is a good one Jude. ❤️
Thank you 😊❤️
Thanks to Padre Ramblings for a great photoprompt… here is my effort for the week. ♥
Mirror Cinquain – A Toast to Life – Sally Cronin
once filled with wine
have now been re-purposed
as decorative reminders
when friends raised high their full glasses
in an affirming toast
to the richness

What a lovely reminder of our previous lives, Sally. ❤️❤️❤️
Thanks Colleen and they will return, even more appreciated I feel..♥♥
Bottles of vino
Craved whilst in isolation
Aware of dangers
This is a good Senryu, Ruth. I had to chuckle at the last line. ❤
