This week’s Poetry Challenge at Colleen Chesebro’s blog is a free-write no synonyms required. I’ve written a Haibun Nonet. You can find the varied styles of poetry for this challenge below in description.
Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 152, #Poet’sChoice
WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets choose your own words.
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. ❤
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:
Voting across the world seems to have become a dangerous divide. With social trolling, smear campaigns, and some ruthless politicians, it can be difficult to make an informed decision. In this new attack mode on global elections, it’s important that we as voters, must do our homework before casting our votes instead of taking everything we hear from those who shout loudest. We’re encouraged to vote for our favorites, sometimes following the masses, when we should be looking for the best policies and and agendas before deciding on a candidate. In a world where capitalistic greed dominates for personal gain, I suggest we’re better off taking a look at what we don’t want from a candidate to avoid becoming blind to those who offer sugar coated promises.
It’s often said, may the best man win.
Everyone carries a blemish.
Take pause, weed out the rot.
