Choka contest


Blog Posted:5/23/2012 6:40:00 PM
Ladies and Gents-
 
   So far I have received 19 poems toward my Choka for a Chokehold contest. Only 9 can even be considered due to the fact the entries are not Choka, and some are not even about Gladiatorial games at all!  I did not read names so I don't know whose is whose, but please- if you enter your poem must be in Choka format and about the Games... anyothers will not be considered.

    Amy, I hope that my poem was in the correct form and I hope others will send what you are looking for. I had fun, taking a trip to the Roman Games! :) Tanya

    Great idea, Andrea. A blog about the form would be helpful. The definition of the format says it can be 5-7-7, 5-7-7, tc. or 5-7-5, 5-7-5, etc. The example you have posted is 5-7-7, 5-7-7, then 5-5-7. This is the way I did it. I wanted to do a longer one but wasn't sure how to continue. Is the last three lines always 5-5-7? That's the part I'm mixed about it.

    I wish you luck getting some Choka poems done right. You should blog about the form!! I really like it.

    Amy I surely hope I did mine right. It's a long one and I noticed others are short; however, the internet tells me that choka can be as long as you want them to be. I saw some of the 5/7 Trochee entries in MYT contest last night. Three of them were poems totally unrecognizable from my form I asked them to do. Good grief!!

    Amy, I've never written a choka before. I wrote what I think is a choka for your contest. How do I know if it is acceptable? I believe the syllables are right and it is about the games...

    Hi Amy, I just wrote something for your contest and followed the format you have as an example. I hope it's what you're looking for. Blessings, Rhonda
