#TankaTuesday #Poetry Stars No. 279 | #Color/Weather Syllabic Poetry

What a wild couple of weeks it’s been. The new floors are in! Both of the upstairs bathrooms will be gutted and replaced, starting today. So, if I appear distracted, I probably am! I can shut my door while the worst of the tear out takes place, so that will help. I will post the Word Craft Syllabic Poetry Contest results on July 13, 2022. This is a busy and exciting week!

This is the media room
This is the loft/yoga room (still a work in progress)

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. I asked everyone to use a color and a bit of weather to make our poetry interesting.

Many thanks to everyone who joined in below:

I think everyone missed writing syllabic poetry! I know color poetry is a favorite and with the addition of weather in our poetry; the imagery was extra special. It was fun to see photos of where you live, as well. We’re all from around the globe. It’s like going on a picturesque, poetic journey with you all.

Here are a few that caught my attention:

Reena shares a poem about a monsoon.

Britta shares How to measure space-time on summer holidays.

Sally shares a crown cinquain called Drought.

See you tomorrow for the new challenge!
