Colleen's Weekly Poetry Challenges

Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge – Week 11 – Game Birds

I just stumbled upon this challenge sponsored by Elsie in New Zealand, on her blog, Ramblings of a Writer! How exciting. Since I’ve started my own Tanka Challenge how could I resist? You can never have too many Haiku or Tanka Challenges for me. ❤

Her requirements are to make the Tanka about game birds. I call this:

“The Grouse”

The Greater Sage Grouse

feathers spread out in glory,

challenging his foe

to a duel of virtue

fighting to acquire the girl.

Thanks for the invitation, Elsie. See you next week!

  1. Love it, Thanks for joining in on the challenge. Soon everyone will know what an English Tanka poem is.
    I have had many comments like they have never heard of that word even Grammarly does accept that word.
    Cheers to Tanka Poetry.

  2. Very nice, Colleen. Some day I just might be able to participate in a challenge of this type. Not the game bird challenge, but maybe something else. Happy Autumn my friend.

      1. I don’t spend a lot of time on the computer lately, Colleen. My eyes are going and there are a lot of other things I would rather be looking at than a computer screen for now.
