Hello everyone. Happy JULY! I’m thrilled to see everyone once again! I need a vacation from my vacation! The second-floor flooring has all been replaced. No more yucky old carpet. I’ve got a break for a week and then the contractor begins work on the two bathrooms. It’s a busy summer!
Now, let’s get back to writing poetry together!
This week, choose your own syllabic form and a color to feature in your syllabic poem. But, let’s add a little something else to make it special! This week, along with a color, add some weather to your poem. You can find some ideas HERE.
If the form is from the #TankaTuesday cheat sheet, 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. 🌈
