Welcome to the Tanka Tuesday Poetry Recap. Last week I gave you two words that should have made you feel like celebrating because spring is trying so hard to appear around the world “dance & command.” There were many synonyms to choose from and I am happy to see such diversity in your poems. Great job everyone!
Here are the results of the voting for Challenge No. 78 “Grow & Honor,” with Jane Doughtery, voted as the Poet of the Week by her peers. <3

HERE’S WHO JOINED US LAST WEEK FOR OUR 79th POETRY CHALLENGE USING SYNONYMS FOR THE WORDS: “DANCE & COMMAND”
Remember, the cutoff for your poetry submission is Sunday, 12 NOON,
Denver Time, USA.
Today is the day we vote on the poem that spoke to you the most from the “Dance and Command,” Synonyms Only Prompt. I’ll announce the winner on next week’s Recap.
Remember, this isn’t a personality contest – it’s a poetry challenge. Visit the links below. Before you vote, ask yourself these questions:
- Does the poem follow the structured guidelines?
- What emotions do the words convey to you as the reader?
- What is it about the poem you selected that makes it resonate with you?
Type in the name of the Poet in the “Other” Category.
Next week, on the Recap I’ll announce the Poet of the Week winner(s) for No. 79 – Dance & Command.
I’m curious to hear your thoughts about the voting process. We had 14 votes with 31 participants, which means only half of you are voting. If you hate the voting we can go back to the old way, but only if you let me know. Thanks. <3
