WEEKLY POETRY CHALLENGE STARS | #Synonyms Only: Annette rochelle aben

It’s HOT in Arizona! How are you staying cool?

Welcome to this week’s poetry challenge stars! Jules picked some interesting words for us all to work with this week for our #SynonymsOnly challenge: Circled and Squared.

At first the words intimidated me… but not for long. Thesaurus.com listed plenty of words.

Circled synonyms: encircle, rotate, surround, loop, etc.

Squared synonyms: balance, fit in, jibe, fix, pay, buy, conform, etc.

Remember the idea behind the synonyms only challenge is not to use the prompt words. That is the challenge part. Search for synonyms on thesaurus.com to use in your poetry.

Thanks to everyone who took part! You did an outstanding job tackling those words. Here’s everyone who joined in courtesy of Mr. Linky:

I selected Annette Rochelle Aben to pick next month’s synonyms. I got a chuckle from her senryu. All the elements are there, irony, humor, and she chose an awkward moment in life making the human, not the world around them (the natural world) the subject of her poem. Excellent!

Congratulations, Annette Rochelle Aben, it’s your turn to pick the synonyms for next month’s #SynonymsOnly challenge. Please Email me your choice at tankatuesdaypoetry@gmail.com before next month’s challenge.
