#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 276, 5/31/22, #ShareYourDay


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:

  1. […] Today I want to write about last Tuesday. Again. I know. An ‘old’ story in the daily bloggosphere. And I want to combine this with my first ever Tanka Tuesday. I’m not much of a tanka person yet, but there’s a first time for everyting and this last day of May seems oddly befitting for such an enterprise. I found Tanka Tuesday on Word Craft Poetry: https://wordcraftpoetry.com/2022/05/31/tankatuesday-weekly-poetry-challenge-no-2-5-31-22-shareyourda… […]


  2. I did a Shadorma series on what happened yesterday… and possibly tomorrow too! 😉
