#TankaTuesday #Poetry Stars No. 263 | #TastetheRainbow: GREEN

Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. This week’s challenge was 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. We can use a form from the cheat sheet or a syllabic form from the Poetscollective.org.

***Now, some of you may wonder why I gave you such specific instructions this week. I often find these kinds of instructions in poetry contests and submissions for journals and other poetic events. If you followed the directions, bravo to you for paying attention! This was a fun way to practice and hone your poetry writing skills!

  2. Hi Sis. Sorry, I can’t share beyond Fakebook. Once again I’m in FB jail LOL. Seems FB can post all the fake news it wants, but I cannot state opinions without being banned. Fascist Fakebook! ❤
