#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #266 #ThemePrompt @ColleenChesebro #DropDrip poetry created by @YvetteMCalleiro
Hi everyone! 🙂
Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for us to create a syllabic poem based on the themes of Fire and Water, picked by Donna Matthews from last month’s challenge.
As ever, we need to avoid ‘ing’ ending words if at all possible.
You can find Colleen’s post HERE.
I’ve chosen to use a new form, Drop Drip, Created by Yvette M Callerio, which looks like a raindrop. The Drop-Drip has 12 lines with syllables 1-2-2-3-3-3-4-4-4-3-2-1. This creates a shape poem that looks like a raindrop. In my head, it looks like a large raindrop collecting on a ledge and falling once it’s gathered enough weight. The form is untitled, and should be paired with a picture, but should be understood alone as well.
Here is my poem:
love and loss
hot tears cascade
needs to stop
I hope you enjoyed this new form of syllabic poetry. Have a lovely day! 🙂
