More poetry! It’s on my 2018 to-do list. Read more poetry, write more poetry. So here we go: I start with Colleen’s challenge.
I found Colleen’s blog last Tuesday and she’s hosting a weekly poetry challenge. To be precise, this week she’s hosting the 67th weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge. Rules are easy: write a Tanka (or Haiku, or Haibun, or…) poem. Including synonyms of two given prompt words in the text.
The prompt words for this week are: play and guess – synonyms only. I used riddle for play and clue for guess. And here’s my (first) Tanka.
If love’s a riddle,
Don’t ever tell me the clue.
My captured heart soars,
Airborne with sweet elation,
And I escape into bliss.
That’s it. My first Tanka. What do you think?
Hope to join again next week for
Excellent Tanka. I love the first two lines. I would have to say you nailed it! ❤ Welcome. I hope to see you each week. ❤
Thank you so much, Colleen. If you come up with some nice prompt words, I’ll try my very best! 🙂

LOL! You got it. The ability to choose synonyms for the prompt words makes all the difference. ❤
