Soliciting Syllabic Poetry Donations Part Two

It’s time for an update on the poetry I need for examples for my new book, Word Craft – The Art of Crafting Syllabic Poetry. I’ve been playing with book cover ideas. The book is divided into two group: Japanese forms and American forms. This book covers the eleven forms we use in the weekly challenge, meant as an introduction for new poets.

I’ve scoured many of your challenge posts searching for some of the more detailed forms, but I still need a few more.

Poets, you hold the rights to your poem. I use it as an example, and site the author, blog, and webpage it is on. Your name and poetry shows up in the bibliography in the back of the book. I reserve the right whether or not I use your poem.

I have some specific forms I’m looking for. Please look back at some of your poetry posts. You may already have written what I’m looking for. If possible, update a poem you’ve already written. That would work best, as the citation gives a link to your blog and the post, and the date written.

I need:

Senryu 3/5/3 (3), 2/3/2 (3)

Haiga 5/7/5 (1), 3/5/3 (3), 2/3/2 (3)

Reverse Cinquain, at least two more

Mirror Cinquain, one more

Crown Cinquain, one more

Garland Cinquain, one more

Double Etheree (at least one more)

Double Inverted Etheree (at least three)

Reverse Nonet (at least three)

Double Inverted Nonet (at least three)

Nonet Series (at least three)

Shadorma Series (at least two more)

Please email me at the link to your poem (s) on your blog. That way, I can get the necessary information for the citations.

LOL! This is my life now!

I’ve updated the Poetry challenge cheatsheet instructions on the various syllabic poetry forms to match what is in the book. You can click on that link below:

Thank you for your help! I appreciate you all!

  1. Hello, I’m new to this blogging and stumbled across this. I’m curious as to what you would call my poetry? I’m not even sure accept rhyming contemporary poetry that touches people’s hearts. Is there a name for it? Anyway I subscribed and will be back to read more of your post.


    1. I’m only looking for syllabic poetry, specifically the eleven forms I use in my weekly challenge. Free form rhyming poetry is not my thing. Many people enjoy writing and reading that form. ❤


      1. Most welcome! Yesterday, I had WP switch my second blog back to the Premium Plan. They set it back to when I renewed the Business plan (3/21/19). Wow! It’s taken hours to get it right but I have no regrets in making the switch.


        1. I think I will stay with the business plan for right now. My biggest issue is with the blog themes. I had so many problems and WP never fixed the issues. I’m glad you made the change. What theme are you using?


          1. I am using the Opti theme for both blogs now. I’m happy I made the switch and surprised WP assisted me right away! WP themes leave a lot to be desired, IMO. Some are too basic while others seem cluttered. It’s difficult to find one that suits your blog. I complained about the lack of good themes and was advised by WP that they will be coming out with new ones that are compatible with the new editor.


            1. Wow! Thank you. That’s so good to know. I really appreciate the information. The themes have been the same for the last 7 years. The few that have come out give you zero options. So frustrating. ❤
