COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 232, #SPECIFICFORM

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

It’s the fifth Tuesday of the month! This is our chance to work with a specific syllabic poetry form. But let’s do something different this time.

  • First, choose your favorite syllabic poetry form. Write your poem.
  • Next, give your poem some different characteristics to make it something different. You can change the syllable count, rhyme scheme (add or get rid of it), anything you want to create a new form. Write this poem.
  • Give your new syllabic poetry form a name.

I have chosen to do a cinquain. My twist is it rhymes on each line.

The American cinquain is an unrhymed, five-line poetic form defined by the number of syllables in each line—the first line has two syllables, the second has four, the third six, the fourth eight, and the fifth two (2-4-6-8-2). They are typically written using iambs.

I call my rhyming Cinquain a Ringquain.

    Yay, Willow! This was great fun. It’s so fun to get creative like this. Not the same old thing. I need to spice it up more often. LOL! 😀

      Thank you, the thought was inspired by the photo taken by my daughter in law of my youngest son and his eldest son… The photo is only of their hands but it says so much.💜
