Good morning and welcome to Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. Colleen said : “For the LAST poetry challenge of 2020, I want you to write a poem about hope, using your favorite poetry form (it doesn’t have to be syllabic). Please make these poems inspirational to others.
No negativity and No politics! We’ve all had enough politics to last us another lifetime.
After you’ve written your poem, tell us why the specific form you chose is your favorite. Why does that form resonate with you? If it’s a new form, teach us how to write that specific form.
I’ll stop by and comment throughout the week as time allows. There will be NO recap post on Monday, January 4, 2021. Make sure and visit the other participant’s post through Mr. Linky or from the ping-backs on the challenge post.
Tanka Tuesday will resume on January 18, 2021.”
New Year New Hope
Harvengers of hope and light arrives Open the doors for their entry Praise the welcome gifts with joy Enter the new year now Full of confidence Undo all ills Let ties of Love bind You.
Today I have chosen my two favourite forms of poetry, the Nonet and the Acrostic Poem . This is an Acrostic Nonet. I love the way these two disaplines concentrate the mind. When put them together I feel I have achieved a small triumph.
This is part of LindaGHill‘s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Linda said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “yes.” Use it as a word, use it in a word, extra points if you start and finish your post with it. Enjoy!
Just Fooling around with Bee says: “It is Thursday which we celebrate and dedicate to places we love. It is entirely up to you how you create this post: write a story, poem, take a photo, link to a page… anything goes as long as it is connected to a place you love”
Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.”
I am going to try and use the theme of graveyards.
It is my own fault I did not have the nerve to sign up for the April A to Z Challenge ! But I could not let it go, one part of me said ( quite rationally ) you have enough to be coping with , don’t put yourself under pressure while the other part of me was screaming you wooze you lazybones you have to do it ! The latter part of me shouts louder and much more harshly than the sensible side!
So here I am Not doing the A to Z April Challenge! Everyday except Sunday I shall post a Nonet, yes I have decided to use the Nonet for my non entry’s! A Nonet is a nine line poem. The first line containing nine syllables, the next line has eight syllables, the next line has seven syllables. That continues until the last line (the ninth line) which has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject. Rhyming is optional.
I do apologize to those who have organized this event and those participating …. I reading those that I know of …. But I an a wooze. The louder braver part of me is urging me on and telling me that next year I must join up and brave up!!
So good luck to everyone involved and I hope you don’t mind we tagging along unofficially!
