I looked up FLAW in the thesaurus and liked the world FOIBLE. I clicked it and the definition had an example (an all-too-human foible.). I’ve always liked the word foible. I just like the way it sounds. That’s a big part of why I like poetry, the way you can use the sounds of words to help create or convey a step above what the words themselves alone mean.
It’s the painting pictures with words you’ve heard about so often.
It’s not just “The blue sky spreads her shawl over her twin, the ocean, protecting her from death by the Sun’s kiss.”
It’s “The vault of heaven lowers its cerulean veil with each day’s end, to reveal treasures beyond.”
It’s “The celestial sphere shimmers like sapphires with each passing moment.”
Why didn’t I use foible in these examples? That would be helping. Me? Help? Never… MUahahahahhaahaha. (That’s my maniacal laugh.)
Drop by on Wednesday for the Décima Poetry Challenge. Sometimes the two challenges have similar themes you can unite over the week.
Check out the COMMENTS for entries this week, and come back throughout the week to see more links to poems as they come in.
Click HERE. To learn about the new style I’ve created called Shi Rensa Haiku and how to write one, maybe even for the challenges.
How to write Haiku in English. And how to do a Pingback.
- Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like.
- The link above has links on how to write Haibun and Tanka. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you like instead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help, visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
- Words have different definitions and you use the definitions that work for you Haiku. You can also use SYNONYMS. Go to Thesaurus.com for synonym help.
- Copy the link of your finished haiku URL and paste in a comment below so we can all go and visit your Haiku.
- You can do a pingback. What’s a pingback? Place the URL from the address bar up top from this post as a link within your post. Your inclusion of the link encourages others to try the challenge, be creative, and join a community to find friends and more followers (hopefully). I honestly gain nothing with more people visiting the post. I don’t have ads running that generates revenue by your visit or by clicks on whatever WordPress has put up.
- Click HERE for a detailed post on PINGBACKS.
- If you like, copy the image in this post and place it within their post, just to show the Haiku is part of this challenge.
- I am not saying you need or even should, but if you would like to do so then go ahead.
The Challenge Words!
