Colleen Chesebro writes a divine, heartful, wonderful Kindku poem, the poetry form created by authors Cendrine Marrouat and David Ellis. Try the form yourself by taking up the Kindku Challenge on the Auroras & Blossoms website.
I can’t help myself. I’ve got to try this KindKu poetry form again from the Auroras & Blossoms Poetry Journal. Click the link to find the challenge #4 writing prompt.
Of course, I’ve combined it with my own Tanka Tuesday challenge where the theme this week is “maps.” Forgive me for not using one of our regular forms.
Here are the KindKu Rules:
The Kindku is a short poem of seven lines and 43 syllables. The syllable pattern is 7 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 7or5 / 7 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 7 / 5.
The Kindku must include seven words that are taken from one specific source — a poem, a book, a newspaper article, etc. In the case of a book or long piece of writing,those words must come from the same page.
