#TankaTuesday #Poetry Stars No. 272 | #TastetheRainbow: Color Poetry

Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. This week’s challenge was to add a color and write our choice of syllabic poem, using a form from the cheat sheet or a syllabic form from the Poetscollective.org.

I was thrilled with this week’s poetry. The psychology behind adding colors to our poetry adds layers of meaning. These deeper levels of meaning help a poet or writer develop the emotions in the reader that help to create persuasive themes or messages.

Many thanks to everyone who joined in below: (all links have been corrected)

  1. Hi Colleen, hope you are enjoying your gardening day. I’ve realized that your posts aren’t showing up in my reader. I received the email notification, but I always go over the reader, and recently they aren’t showing in there.


      1. Yes, I subscribe to the email, but sometimes I go directly to the WP app, and I thought it was strange don’t see your posts in there! 😉


  2. Congrats to all the contributors, Colleen. I found you in the reader by typing in Colleen. I have to do the same with mine. I type in Eugi/Eugenia or Eclectic to find my blogs in the reader.💖
