Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. This week’s challenge was to write our choice of syllabic poem, using a form from the cheat sheet or a syllabic form from the Poetscollective.org. The idea was to share some aspect of your day (or week). This is a way to get to know each other better. I enjoy this challenge so much. It’s great to get a more personal glimpse into your lives. 💜
Many thanks to everyone who joined in below. Let’s give a warm welcome to our newest poets: Britta Benson, Tzvi Fievel, and Smitha Vishwanath.

I love this challenge! You all did a fabulous job this week! Thanks for joining in.
I’ve set the date for the Word Weaving Syllabic Poetry Contest! The contest will kick off on June 21, 2022, the Summer Solstice. On that date, I’ll post the rules, the prize amounts, and the length of the contest. MARK YOUR CALENDARS.
Please be aware that I won’t post a #TankaTuesday challenge that week. I’m sure you would rather submit your poetry for a chance to win some prize money. 💜
See you tomorrow for the new challenge!

Another wonderful prompt Colleen.. ♥
Thanks so much, Sally. It was fun to catch up with everyone. 💜
Huge warm welcome to Britta, Tzvi, and Smitha! Lots of wonderful responses this week 💕🙂
Thanks, Harmony. I hope you’re feeling better this week too. 💜
A wonderful prompt and great turnout, Colleen. Hopefully, I can get back in the swing of things now that my blog and domain issues have been resolved. ❤️
Sounds great, Franci. I finally got a free WP account set up for: unicorncatspubservices.wordpress.com. You can bypass the FSE editor and search for a free theme. It took me awhile to figure out. I don’t think they want us using the old themes. LOL! 😀
That’s great and I am glad you found a free theme. I agree about WP not wanting us using the old themes. I’ve seen only a couple of blogs that did a good job with FSE.
FSE is such a step backwards! I hope WP gets that FSE is ugly and useless.
I enjoyed this week of poetry. I’m excited for your poetry contest, Colleen! I’ll be out of town until June 24th, but I’m assuming there will be plenty of time when I return to work on it. I look forward to reading the winning entries. 🙂
The contest will only last a week, Yvette. In fact, the week after, I’m taking a blog break. We’re redoing the floors upstairs and it will be pure chaos for me trying to write anything. I’m sure you’ll find a bit of time to write during your vacation. ❤
I will definitely do my best to find time to write. 🙂
Yay! I know you’ll be on vacation. 💜
unrelated yet I’d like you all to know about my review of a book of a lovely member in this group.
Will go live later this evening. Please spread the word to support The wonderful Author. Thanks, all. https://selmamartin.com/young-adults-and-adult-readers-will-love-this-book/ She deserves the accolades, not I. xoxo

Greetings to my Prose Princess.
I’m just passing by.
In an attempt to compress;
conform or defy,
either is anyone’s guess.
Seriously, I have a moment between tasks at the office, and want to check in and say hello. Also, if you want to come on our radio show and talk about one of my favorite subjects, you, that would be fantastic. Thursday await you. I will be your personal liaison across the internet.
Thanks for your time, this time; until next time, so long… Myke
Thanks so much, Michael for your lovely comment. I have plans Thursday night, but maybe another time. ❤
