COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 109, HAPPY NOVEMBER – “POETS CHOICE OF WORDS”

 

 

bluewave poetry

 

A blue wave has come

Can you feel the energy

Prayers have been answered

With hands on heart we rejoice

Law and order now restored

 

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 5/7/5 syllable structure. A Haiku is written about seasonal changes, nature, and change in general.

TANKA IN ENGLISH 5/7/5/7/7 syllable structure. Your Tanka will consist of five lines written in the first-person point of view. This is important because the poem should be written from the perspective of the poet.

HAIBUN IN ENGLISH Every Haibun must begin with a title. Haibun prose is composed of short, descriptive paragraphs, written in the first-person singular.

The text unfolds in the present moment, as though the experience is occurring now rather than yesterday or some time ago. In keeping with the simplicity of the accompanying haiku or tanka poem, all unnecessary words should be pared down or removed. Nothing must ever be overstated.

The poetry never tries to repeat, quote, or explain the prose. Instead, the poetry reflects some aspect of the prose by introducing a different step in the narrative through a microburst of detail. Thus, the poetry is a sort of juxtaposition – different yet somehow connected.

Cinquain ALSO: Check out the Cinquain variations listed here: Cinquain-Wikipedia These are acceptable methods to use. Please list the form you use so we can learn from you. 

Etheree The Etheree poem consists of ten lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. The trick is to create a memorable message within the required format. Poets can get creative and write an Etheree with more than one verse, but the idea is to follow suit with an inverted syllable count. Reversed Etheree Syllable Count: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Double Etheree Syllable Count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Senryu in English 5/7/5 syllable structure. A Senryu is written about love, a personal event, and have IRONY present. Click the link to learn the meaning of irony.

  1. Great stuff, Debby. I wouldn’t have understood if I hadn’t seen reference to the ‘blue wave’ last night. It reminds me the Cat Stevens song that says, “Don’t you feel a change a comin”

    1. Thanks Norah, or similarly – Bob Dylan’s – the times are a ‘changin’ 🙂

  2. Terrific Debby…Great image and words… blue wave and hopefully it will roll all the way to shore…♥

    1. Thanks bunches Sal. Amen to that! Thank goodness for the wave, although plenty of hurdles to cross before January when they actually take control <3 xox

  3. Aaaah. You hit the nail on the head with this one, Debby! It makes me want to jump up and dance. Too bad we couldn’t swing the Senate too, but I’ll take it. And almost 100 women in the House too! (I always knew that women would be the ones to save the world). 🙂 All we need to do is make it to January without a serious Trump disaster. Love the poem!!!

    1. Thanks bunches Diana. Now YOU hit the nail on the head! These next 7 weeks are crucial until the babysitters can take their seats and start undoing some of the evil that he’s created. The Mueller investigation is absolutely crucial to protect, and now with firing Sessions and putting in another tRump ass licker, new dangers arise. Women will absolutely rule the world one day! <3

  4. Excellent poem, Sis. By January, the checks and balances will be in place. <3

    1. Thanks Sis. And you bet! We just have to buckle up for 7 rocky weeks and we’ll get there! <3

  5. Excellent poem, Debby! Let’s see what happens come January. I’m hoping for the best. Happy Friday and great weekend, my friend! <3 xo

    1. Thanks Vashti. Let us just make it through til January! <3

  6. Here is to hoping! Great poem, Debby!

    1. Thank you Olga. <3

  7. Amen and Amen!!! The count down to the light at the end of the tunnel is ON..

    Nice work here😊

    Pat

    1. Thank you so much Pat. Yes it is! January will be a good month. 🙂

  8. Yes! Love this, Debby! XO

    1. Thank you Natalie <3
