Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 138 #SynonymsOnly

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

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

Shaking & Baking in the desert!

Here are your two words for this week:

“Clear & Nature”

Join in this week’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge using Synonyms Only for the words: Clear & Nature. #Haiku, #Senryu, #Haiga, #Tanka, #Haibun, #CinquainPoetry, #Etheree, #Nonet, #Shadorma

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words. ❤

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. ❤

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. The RECAP is published on Monday and 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.

This will give me a chance to cut and paste the poems from the submission form emails into the Recap published on Monday.

The rules are simple

Follow the schedule listed below:

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

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #78 Vast & Clear

Welcome to my first new Haiku of 2016 for Ronovan Writes’ Weekly Haiku Challenge! The words are really fun this week: vast and clear. There are so many different ways to go. I decided to use “cosmic” for “vast,” and to use “clear” all on its own.

I thought this would be an appropriate way to start the new year! I feel such excitement this year at the prospects that lay ahead!

Cosmic forces grow – clearing the aura of old.

Clearing the aura of old, white light surrounds me.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Silver loves poetry and Haiku! 😀
