#TankaTuesday #Poetry Stars No. 242 | Poet’s Choice

Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. This week’s challenge was everyone’s favorite: Poet’s Choice! I asked you to write your poetry using one of these forms: haiku, senryu, haiga, tanka, gogyohka, haibun, tanka prose, renga, solo renga, chōka, cinquain, and its variations, Etheree, nonet, shadorma, Badger hexastich, Abhanga, diatelle, the Kerf poetry, and any of the syllabic forms from the Poetscollective.org. As a bonus, I included the option to write freestyle poetry as long as you added one syllabic form with your poem.

Many thanks to everyone who joined in below:
