The “Weekly Tanka Challenge Prompt” is now also a Poetry Challenge (any form).

Use the weekly poetry prompt “nature & wilderness”  to write a poem – any form, your choice, also please feel free to substitute these prompt words with a “synonym”.

Today I’m trying another new form of poetry – Oriental Octet

Pure Bliss

Perfect pathless view
bushland of pure wilderness
beauty well hidden,
a waterfall slowly flows.
Earth has music, just listen
nature is speaking
to the landscape and features
its the universe

Oriental Octet is an invented verse form that appears to emulate the syllabic pattern of the tanka and haiku. It was created by James R. Gray who requests the theme of the poem be nature.

  1. an octastich, a poem in 8 lines.
  2. syllabic, 5-7-5-7-7-5-7-5 syllables per line.
  3. unrhymed.

Tanka Poetry – consists of five units, usually with the following pattern of 5-7-5-7-7 which is syllables.

The first three lines (5/7/5) are the upper phase. This upper stage is where you create an image in your reader’s mind.

The last two lines (7/7) of a Tanka poem are called the lower phase.  The final two lines should express the poet’s ideas about the image that was created in the three lines above.

Reverse Etheree Poetry – The only difference is that the syllabic count is reversed: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Free Verse – No limitations – What is the difference between blank verse and free verse? The difference is in the structure.

Both blank verse and free verse are free from rhyme scheme. But, whereas blank verse does have a consistent meter, usually iambic pentameter, that creates a du-DUM rhythm effect, free verse is free from both meter and rhyme. It is free from the limitations of verse poetry.

Sidlak Poetry – is a structured poetry consisting of five lines with 3-5-7-9 syllables and a color. The last line must be a color that describes the whole poem or the feeling of the writer.

Etheree Poetry – Syllabic Pattern: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10, Rhyme: None

Double Etheree – Two Etheree stanzas, where the second one is reversed.Syllabic count: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1Rhyme not required

Triolet  Poetry – consists of 8 lines. Line 1, 4 and 7 are the same line repeated.  So are lines 2 and 8. No syllable count, although the preferred one for repeating forms is the standard eight syllables. Rhyme ABaAabAB, capital letters representing repeated lines

Haiku/Senryu Poetry – Here is an in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

Shadorma Poetry– is a Spanish poetic form. A poem of six lines 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables no set rhyme scheme. It can have many stanzas, as long as each follows the meter.

Bussokusekika Poetry – a pattern of 5-7-5-7-7-7 Tanka poem with an extra phrase of seven added on at the end.

Retourne Poetry is a French form of poetry and its all about repetition. It contains four quatrains and each line has eight syllables. (16 lines, 8/8/8/8)

The trick is that the first stanza second line ,must also be the second stanza first line, the first stanza third line is the third stanza first, and the first stanza fourth line is the fourth stanza first. Retournes do not have to rhyme. (rhyme optional)

Tetractys   5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20), it can be written with more than one verse but must follow suit with an inverted syllable count.

Double Tetractys A decastich (10-line stanza) with an emphasis on the syllabic count of each line. Syllabic count: 1-2-3-4-10-10-4-3-2-1 It should express a complete thought and may be on any theme and express any mood. Rhyme is optional.

World Suicide Prevention Day was observed on 10 September 2018, the reason for this poem.

Double Etheree Poem – Emotions and Healing

Life
Sadness,
bitterness
confusion kills.
Don’t save emotions.
Channel them all out now
never ignore your feelings.
Understand why you feel like this
wounded heart will heal in the future,
never be ashamed to weep, that’s grieving
emotions heal when they are heard, so speak
concealing twisted emotions kill
or damage the mind forever.
Feeling good is everything,
sun’s shining. Let it shine,
give someone a hug,
opens your heart.
Listen, you
can hear
music.
