TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 284, 8/9/22, #SpecificForm: 4-11

Yvette Calleiro selected a syllabic form for this week.. Her choice was a form that Gwen Plano created, called the 4-11.

Gwen says the 4-11 is a stanza of eleven lines, four syllables each line. The beginning line also repeats as the last line. Here is Gwen’s example.


freedom boundless
an elusive
mirage gleaming
on blistering
dry sandy plains
beguile,it ties
in shadowy
stifling fetters
of clanging coiled
freedom boundless

Happy Independence Day to all my Fellow Countrymen!
