Word Craft Poerty’s #TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge 5/9/2023

Colleen M. Chesebro has a weekly tanka challenge on her website Word Craft Poetry.  This week’s challenge is to write a tanka to go with the lovely photo above by Terri Webster Schrandt. Every time I do this challenge, I have to use Colleen’s cheat sheet or her book

Word Craft: Prose & Poetry The Art of Crafting Syllabic Poetry.

I love writing poetry, but freestyle is my favorite. Syllabic poetry has always been somewhat of a challenge for me.  But, I love a challenge. So here we go.

the river whispers

songs of love to the flowers

loving from afar

I love you for your beauty,

brightness, wisdom, grace, and peace

Join in on the fun of this challenge.

Thank-you for reading,

Much love and light,

Brenda Marie
