Hello everyone. This week, let’s have fun with the color of March: GREEN!
Green is one of those colors that includes many shades of green. This color also has different meanings not associated with the color.
This week’s challenge is to choose your own syllabic form and a shade of green to feature in your syllabic poem. You’ll receive bonus points if you don’t use the name: green. You’ll also receive bonus points if you can also incorporate a different meaning for the word green in your 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. Please let us know the name of the form. With so many syllabic forms, it’s hard to know which one you’re using. ❤
Here is my example: A senryu:
emerald crystals— assist immature witches believe in magic © Colleen M. Chesebro
I used the word “emerald” for green and the word “immature” which also means green, or inexperienced!
P.S. 🌈 Taste the Rainbow refers to colors. You do not have to write about a rainbow in your poem. Include a color. 🌈
