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 using the theme provided by Eugi: The Gray Scarf.
Many thanks to everyone who joined in below:
Thanks so much for joining in this challenge. Oh, my goodness… you all outdid yourselves this week. Many thanks to Eugi for the wonderful theme. I asked for story poems and you delivered! Here are a few I have to highlight because they were so good.
Reena: The Widow. A few of us picked up the “widow” vibes, possibly inspired by the color gray. This Anaduo poem tells a succinct story. Reena expressed a turmoil of emotions in this one!
This stacked double Etheree, The Gray Scarf by Balroop, is another excellent story poem. I love these lines: “Then how did winter winds creep into divest us of our solemn vows?” All of this prompted by the gray scarf. Who knew?
Willow’s kouta, Gray Scarf, is another great poem full of emotions. She links the warmth of the gray scarf to the warmth she felt with her mother. Excellent!
Annette’s Etheree, Taking Comfort, reads like a piece of flash fiction with a surprise ending. Stunning!
Many thanks for writing poetry with me. 💜
