WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
Buying and selling a house cross country is stressful! Things are moving forward as usual. We had one full price offer on our house, but they wanted us out in two weeks!! I said no-way!
We have found a couple of houses in Michigan and bid on them, but not high enough. I have two more picked out, so we shall see how that proceeds. Fingers crossed. Wish us luck. ❤
It’s the third week of the month! Time for an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt
On the Monday before the next challenge, I will 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! Email your selection to me at firstname.lastname@example.org a week before the challenge. Please include the photo credit and the link to the photographer. Thank you!
For the Tanka Tuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in the forms defined on the Poetry Challenge Cheatsheet (click the link below):
Here are some impressive sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables:
A simple yet powerful syllable counter for poems and text which will count the total number of syllables and number of syllable per line for poems like haikus, limericks, and more.
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.
- Write a poem using a form of your choice: Haiku, Senryu, Haiga, Tanka, Gogyohka, Haibun, Tanka Prose, Cinquain, and its variations, Etheree, Nonet, and Shadorma. Please try to only use these forms. The first of the month challenge, you can write whatever syllabic form you choose.
