I’m posting early this week, I have made a decision that this is the final Tanka Challenge, if you want to do a prompt this week you can but as from now I will not be continuing this, I need to spend time with my husband who is not well, also look after my own health…

I will still write poetry occasionally on this site, but it will be under no pressure of a timeline.

I would like to thank all of you fine poets for participating each week. I appreciate your loyalty.

  1. Oh how sad! First the Daily Post and now my favourite mid-week Tanka! Times are a-changing!

    Of course, we all completely understand. You need to put yourself and your family first. Wishing you all the best, your prompt will be missed 😢

    • Thanks, Sarah for the kind comment. I will still be around, even doing your prompts, I have just taken a little pressure of-of my weekly jobs, making life a little easier in my household. Hope you are having a peaceful week.


    • Thanks Joella, I appreciate your kind comment. My husband health is deteriorating, a lot of pain in his back making it hard for him to walk, which does not help my situation, too much stress. It’s been grand meeting you my friend through the Weekly Tanka Challenge, we are old friends now, nearly two years.

      • It doesn’t seem that long. One day, maybe I’ll have a weekly poetry prompt, but for now, a monthly prompt is all I can handle. 🙂

        Have you thought about seeing if someone wanted to take over the mantle for you and keep the poetry going until such time as you might want to take up the torch again?

        My 2nd husband (married 10 years) passed away after a long illness. “Devistating” doesn’t begin to describe it. I pray that your husband can find relief and that both of you can be together in health for many more years.

      • Thanks for the nice comment.
        I haven’t thought about anyone continuing these prompts, but anyone reading this and would like to continue it, they are welcomed to do so. An open invite to anyone.

      • You’re sincerely welcome, Elsie. . .
        I am always grateful when I meet a sweet person who shares nature and poetry with me.
        There are many times I would be about ready to go to bed and your posts were the last ones I read. They were positive and held a lot of talent. Take care and God bless you, your husband and your whole family.

  3. Thank you Kiwinana for being so generous with your time, and for sharing Tanka poetry. I had nary a clue before reading your cleverness, and now I offer my most sincere hopes that you and yours will feel better quickly, and with more time on your hands have much peace, serenity, and a higher, better healthier lifestyle. Peace Be Still ****

  4. I wish you the best as you make time to do what you must. Though only a sporadic participant I have enjoyed and appreciated what you do here. You have been friendly and supportive, a help to me since I first started blogging just over a year ago. So thank you and best of luck.

    • Thank you, you have helped me cheer up a little from giving up this challenge, I wasn’t happy doing it, but I needed to cut back my weekly workload and this was one less weekly commitment, I will still be around, reading blogs and posting occasionally. Have a great week.
