RE-POST – Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 146 #SynonymsOnly

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

I apologize for all the trouble. This is a REPOST of the original challenge post from this morning. The sharing buttons are missing and I can’t get them to show up. The issue has to do with the new editor and the fact that I copied the post. Apparently that is a no-no. Is the Gutenberg editor cursed?

Let’s see if this works. Please let me know if you still do not see sharing buttons. I can’t see them in the preview.

Link your poetry to either post. I’ll check both of them. <3

Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?

Here are your two words for this week:

FALL & GIVE

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! 

Check the thesaurus for different meanings of these words. The word fall is a homonym.

PLEASE support the other poets by visiting their blogs and leaving comments. Sharing each other’s work on social media is always nice too.

This challenge is for Haiku, Senryu, Haiga, Tanka, Haibun, Etheree, Nonet, Shadorma, and Cinquain poetry forms. Freestyle rhyming poetry is not part of this challenge. Thank you. <3

For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in one of the forms defined below. Click on the links to learn about each form:

HAIKU IN ENGLISH 

SENRYU IN ENGLISH

HAIGA

TANKA IN ENGLISH 

HAIBUN IN ENGLISH 

CINQUAIN & the variations on Cinquain-Wikipedia 

ETHEREE

NONET

SHADORMA

Here are some great sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables

synonyms.com 

This site even has a link so you can install the extension on Google Chrome.

thesaurus.com

For Synonyms and Antonyms. When your word has too many syllables, find one that works.

howmanysyllables.com

Find out how many syllables each word has. I use this site to compose my poems. Click on the “Workshop” tab, then cut and paste your poetry into the box. Click the Count Syllables button on the button. This site does the hard work for you.

I don't get it

THE RULES

I will publish the Tuesday prompt post at 12: 03 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Phoenix, AZ).  That should give everyone time to see the prompt from around the world. I publish the RECAP on Monday and it will contain the poetry from the Poet of the Month and any Honorable Mentions.

You have one week to complete the Challenge with a deadline of Sunday, at 12:00 P.M. (Noon) Phoenix, AZ, U. S. A.

The rules are simple

Follow the schedule listed below:

Please do a LINK-BACK to this challenge by copying the https:// address of this post into your own.

Don't forget

As time allows, I will visit your blog, comment, and TWEET your POETRY. I have also been sharing some of your poetry on Facebook.

If you add these hashtags to your post TITLE on your blog (depending on which poetry form you use) your poetry may be viewed more often:

#Haiku, #Senryu, #Haiga, #Tanka, #micropoetry, #poetry, #5lines, #Haibun, #Prose, #CinquainPoetry, #Etheree, #Nonet, #Shadorma

You may copy the badge I have created to go with the Weekly Poetry Challenge Post and place it in your post. It’s not mandatory:

Have fun and write some poetry!

  9. I’ve had issues with the reblog button disappearing along with others, however, the problem seems to have cleared up for me just recently. I use the new editor and find it takes time to get used to but it has many cool features.

          1. I started using the new editor early on because it was easier to learn it one step at a time and not feel rushed. I think WP is trying to make it more adaptable as they populate their revisions. With that said, revisions can cause issues, and so it goes.

        1. There are many themes available now for gutenberg. This block system is used by other blog sites, so this is probably the wave of the future. The editor isn’t bad. I do like it. I just want it to work. LOL! 😀

  11. Buttons are there, Sis. You’re not the only one with blog issues. Others have been complaining about missing content. I’ll bet WP ran an update and now they’re playing dumb. Oh, wait, maybe not playing. 🙄
