Please note: Some of these sites are not accessible. I’ve even tried searching your blogs one post at a time, trying to find your post, but that didn’t work either. Besides, that is way too time-consuming for me.

Please add the URL of your blog post after it has posted and gone live on your blog. The URL is the https:// address of your post. Copy and paste your post’s URL into Mr. Linky. If there is another address left in Mr. Linky, delete the old address first, then copy and paste in the new address.

If you link to my challenge post (do this by copying the URL of my challenge post into your own blog post. I receive a “ping-back” letting me know you linked to my post. These ping-backs show up as links in the comments section of my challenge post. I search these links only as a last resort. Please make it easy for us to find your post. ❤

DON’T FORGET! This week, Tuesday’s poetry challenge will feature the Carrot Ranch Rodeo poetry challenge! Carrot Ranch is famous for 99-word flash fiction, and I created a form called the Double Ennead, a 99 syllable form to challenge your word skills! There are a few surprises with this form and the chance to win $25 for the top prize from Carrot Ranch.com. Be ready to write!

Congratulations everyone! I’m sharing a few of my favorite poems from this week.

Jude did some spectacular tweaking to the tanka form this week by using three variations of the tanka form, which resulted in some spectacular Gogyohka (s/l/s/l/l).

My Forever Blog introduced the Alouette syllabic form. This has an interesting rhyming scheme as well.

D. L. Finn wrote a spectacular haiga. The image is where I want to go and relax. 😀

All right, Word Metrists… get some sleep! Tomorrow’s challenge is going to be something special!
