#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 276, 5/31/22, #ShareYourDay

Colleen Chesebro


It’s the fifth Tuesday of the month!  #ShareYourDay is a way to get to know each other better. Take a photo and write a syllabic poem about your day. Don’t think on it too hard. Make it fun. The photo does not need to be a selfie. If you don’t have access to a camera, find an image on Pixabay.com (please add the credits) that best describes your day.

Today I have written about three Jewels in my life, who always cheer me up. I have written a Cinqku. A Cinqku must always have 5 lines and a perfect seventeen-syllable count. The lines typically follow a 2,3,4,6,2 format. There is no title requirement on the second line. As for syntax and diction styles, it follows the free Tanka style originally. There are no metric requirements for a cinqku poem. Additionally, the final line must contain a cinquain or kireji turn for emphasis.  I added a twist I linked three Cinqku and have called them a Cinqku chain.

These are
Three Jewels
In my life’s crown
Happy boys and Ruby.

They lift my
Mood and my day
Their innocence shines out

For me to store
The grandsons and Ruby

    Adorable, Willow Dot. I just posted this link into a comment to introduce you to another good friend. These boys certainly show a lot of personality. I bet they are a handfull – especially that little guy.
