I have been giving a tanka weekly prompt for 79 weeks, this week, Week 80 and I’m opening it up to the Weekly Poetry Prompt Challenge.

I’m leaving the Title still as “Weekly Tanka Prompt”, but it is now open to all Poetry Forms

Use the weekly poetry prompt “nature & peace”  to write a poem – Any form, your choice.

I have been trying a few new ones, you may like to try one yourself.

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.

Triolet  Poetry – is a poem of fixed rhythmical form, with repeated lines. It is made up of eight lines with a set rhyming scheme.

Triolet Poetry

A Triolet consists of 8 lines.
The rhyming scheme is:
AB, aA, abAB

Line 1, 4 and 7 are the same line repeated
So are lines 2 and 8.

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. 

Tanka Poetryconsists 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.

Bussokusekika Poetry – a pattern of 5-7-5-7-7-7

It is a tanka poem with an extra phrase of seven added on at the end.

I’m writing a Bussokusekika poem, using the prompt “Nature & peace”

Sound of birds singing
echoed deep in the valley
breeze whistling through trees
the cry of a newborn kid
nanny goat answers high pitch
nature provides peace within.
