WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!
Happy Memorial Day (May 30th)! What is Memorial Day?
It’s the fifth Tuesday of the month! #ShareYourDay is a way to get to know each other better. Take a photo and write a syllabic poem about your day. Don’t think on it too hard. Make it fun. The photo does not need to be a selfie. If you don’t have access to a camera, find an image on Pixabay.com (please add the credits) that best describes your day.
For this challenge, write your poem in one of the forms defined on the cheat sheet OR from the forms found on Poetscollective.org.
Here are some sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables:

Take a photo of what your day has been like, then write a syllabic form of your choice found on the cheat sheet OR from Poetscollective.org. Don’t overthink it. Just have fun!
*USE sodacoffee.com/syllables to count your syllables. That way, we are all using the same syllable counter.
Post it on your blog.

Should be interesting… thanks Colleen ♥
You’re welcome, Sally. 💜
I did a Shadorma series on what happened yesterday… and possibly tomorrow too! 😉
(Not sure if the right line got put in… I hadn’t put it in, but it came up that it already had the link I was putting in?)
Sounds fun Sis. And Happy belated Memorial Day ❤
Thanks, Sis. We had a nice time. ❤
Sorry it’s been soooo long, Sis, but here I am, for this week at least! ❤
It’s so great to see you, Sis. I’ve been down for a couple days under the weather. I’ll be back tomorrow. Hugs to you. ❤
