#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 259: #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry

Hello everyone. This week, choose your own syllabic form and color to feature in your syllabic poem. If the form is from the #TankaTuesday Cheat sheet, let us know so we know where to look for directions. If it’s a new form, share how to write it and where you found the instructions. Think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.

P.S. 🌈 Taste the Rainbow refers to colors. You do not have to write about a rainbow in your poem. Add a color to your poem. 🌈


Here are some sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables:

      1. Yeah, I know I can post any time, but it is out of sight out of mind – I have to remember to go search for it, and some mornings I have a hard enough time remember my own name 😉 Tuesday – Tanka – easy to remember 🙂 Thanks, Colleen!

  1. I was thinking of all the expression we use that involve color, so had a bit of fun. It reads as a rainbow of sorts, but in the end, it’s all about orange! Link in Mister Linky.

  2. Slowly wandering back to the world of word creation. Thought I’d take the new year in a new direction and we’ll just see where it goes. So this week my attempt is about sweet cantaloupe blush – oranges and gold and wild horses …. it was interesting, especially when counting syllables doesn’t always seem to make sense when writing poetry – but I persisted and ended with a fascinating construction. It’s about the craft process, so it’s all good. Thanks for the challenge, as always.
