🌶️ This week’s challenge is The Spice of Life: Choose a spice from your kitchen cabinet, and relate its flavor to an event that recently happened in your daily life. Write your syllabic poem! Bonus—if you share a photo of the spice in your post. 🌶️

REMEMBER… if you write a freestyle poem, you MUST include a syllabic poem on the same post! Connect the two pieces of poetry in an interesting way.

Here are some sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables:

  1. I’m sorry, but on the linky the wrong link was listed for me. i think it’s because I used the template of my first #TankaTuesday post. Sigh, WordPress. I have now linked to my new post, but is there a way to take down the wrong one? So sorry!

  2. Hi Colleen, I’m new to the WordPress community and poetry in general. I like these prompts that I see on my reader most days. I’ve been starting to do them. Thanks for the 45 minutes of thinking about cumin 🙂
