Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. Yvette selected this week’s challenge. We were to write our syllabic poem using the 4/11 syllabic form created by Gwen Plano.
I was so pleased to see so many of you embrace this form. It just goes to show that syllabic poetry doesn’t have to be difficult to write. Eleven lines, with four syllables per line, says so much!
Just a reminder… don’t forget to add your published post link to Mr. Linky! 💜💚💛

This was a tough week to select only one poem. I loved all of them! There was so much creativity! I read them over and over. 💜
A special thank you to Harmony Kent and Annette Rochelle Aben for their help in tweeting and sharing all our posts on social media. I couldn’t do this without you guys. 🙏🏻 ❤️
Check out Smitha’s poetry, photography, and artwork!
If you’re looking for a photographic vacation (I was) then you must read Margaret’s poem and enjoy the photos.
I selected Jules’ poem, “Airy Wonderland,” to feature. I loved the idea of staring at the clouds as the shapes take on new meaning. Cloud dreaming is a summer adventure; and as summer slips away, remember to grab those moments. Soon, autumn will present itself and summer will be a distant memory.
