Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. This week’s challenge was poet’s choice. Poets chose the form they wanted to write, including freestyle poetry as long as it included one syllabic form with it. This is a great way to get your creative juices flowing! The objective is creativity. There’s nothing wrong with starting out with a freestyle poem if that is how the words flow. Just remember to add a syllabic form to go along with it. Don’t forget to explore haibun and tanka prose poetry. They are splendid ways to elaborate on a theme, an experience, or even to tell a story.
Many thanks to everyone who joined in below:

There were some amazing new forms this week, along with many favorites. It was especially good to see some new faces and old friends. Poet’s Choice is truly a favorite the beginning of each month. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the other poets, please stop by and say hello. We learn these forms from each other. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve learned a new form from one of you!
Not sure how to write the basic forms in Japanese & American Syllabic poetry?
I’ve done the work of researching these syllabic forms for you. Word Craft: Prose & Poetry is available as an Ebook and a Print book. mybook.to/WordCraftProsePoetry Let’s write syllabic poetry together! ❤
See you tomorrow for the new challenge!
