Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka #Poetry Challenge – Poet’s Choice

Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. This week is Poet’s Choice. I’ve written a Tanka.



Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 176, #Poet’sChoice


It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you!

Are you looking for inspiration for your syllabic poetry? Find an image on or experiment with “found poetry” as a way to find some inspiration. Another option is to try some magnetic poetry. You still have to count syllables, but it’s like putting together a puzzle!

If that doesn’t work… take a walk in nature. Engage your five senses. Remember, always write your poetry for yourself. Make it meaningful to you! . . . continue reading at Colleen’s blog.





The Change


The drums beat louder.

Natives edging on restless.

Thunder rolls the sky.

History is repeating.

Sad endings – new beginnings.


Visit Colleen’s original post and join in the fun anytime! Different challenge weekly and your choice of style of poetry!
