#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 268: 4/5/22 #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry

Hello everyone. This week, choose your own syllabic form and a color to feature in your syllabic poem. If the form is from the #TankaTuesday Cheatsheet, 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. Just include a color in your poem. 🌈

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

  5. Thanks, Colleen. And if I may please leave a message here for Harmony: I still cannot leave comments on your posts. Just know I’m here and reading. Your NaPo/TankaTuesday is fantastic. So many words for blue. How very creative. Thanks for sharing. I will not get in the habit of using up this space, but I really wanted Harmony to know.
    Stay sweet, everyone. I wish you miracles.

      1. Me too! I joined the forum and posed a question about the availability of interesting and quality themes.

        It doesn’t seem to be a bad deal if you are already on the Premium plan.

          1. I upgraded Eclectic Brew to Pro. I had a credit of $80. and decided this is a good time to use it. The selection of themes hasn’t changed so I’ll see how it goes. My new Pro plan doesn’t expire until March 2023 so if I don’t like it, I’ll move this blog to Blue Host, as well.

          2. I don’t get it either. I thought there would be more themes with Pro. There are a ton of plugins!

          3. Weaver Xtreme Theme. It’s a very intricate theme to set up but worth it once complete. Yes, all colors are available anywhere in the theme.

          1. Thank you so much!
            Last few weeks have been a bit crazy!
            I wrote it late at night and sent it.
            Sorry again!❤️
