NaPoWriMo – Day Thirty – ‘Again and Again’

The final day of NaPoWriMo is here! I managed a solid 29/30 which is much more than I expected to accomplish. I have a tarot challenge picked out for May to participate in and have plans to post a poem for each day based on my readings, so hopefully I will still be active daily.… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Thirty – ‘Again and Again’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Nine – ‘Lilies’

Didn't get around to posting this yesterday due to yesterday's big storm - so here it is now! The prompt was to take a concrete noun from our favorite poem and use it as a anchor to brainstorm a new one. I my favorite poem is Tennyson's Lady of Shallot (I even have a tattoo… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Nine – ‘Lilies’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Eight – ‘The Goal’

I was a bit later than usual today, but I managed to work out a Skeltonic poem per the prompts request. Now, i'm a little mixed about this one. I like it, but outside of the words involved, I find putting this thought into words to be lengthy. Keeping my lines short was quite hard..… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Eight – ‘The Goal’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Seven – ‘Dreaming of Silence’

Today's prompt was to do a poem on taste! I chose silence because... why not? Also I must apologize - Yesterday was full of unexpected surprises at work. By the time I got home at 1am I was dead tired and just went to sleep. 'Dreaming of Silence' A long night spent painfully quiet, A… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Seven – ‘Dreaming of Silence’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Five – ‘The Closet’

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt was to explore a small, defined space. This was fun to write. 'The Closet' There are a few hundred mysteries to behold Some hanging, some laying, some folded Between all these cloths bought half-old In that little closet of mine standing swollen. There are shoes, semi-worn stuffed in nooks Four shirts well… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Five – ‘The Closet’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Four – ‘Snails’

Today's prompt was to do a ekphrasis about the art that appears in Medieval manuscripts - a fun topic. I loved studying that period's literature in school, and have even been tempted to go to graduate school for it. Now, this is terrible, but damn was it fun to write. 'Snails' Every morning until a… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Four – ‘Snails’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Three – ‘My Write’

I like this form, the elevine, it feels very clean and prompt - a nice change from the usual hecticness that I've been experiencing lately. It was a welcome prompt for today, and I might play with it again, later on.   'My Write' Words Gathering together Inside of me- Escaping, trying to become Poetry… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Three – ‘My Write’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Two – ‘Don’t Care to Care’

I must apologize - I wrote all this half asleep(I'm just that exhausted from work). Around the end I realized this might not be a georgic poem, it doesn't seem to have much in way of dealing with land or rural imagery... unless the thing you're caring for is not land but rather yourself. You… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Two – ‘Don’t Care to Care’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-One – ‘Spending Time’

Sorry for being late - My day off work was spent at work. Tomorrow I will probably be late as well as I'm scheduled for around 17 hours. Long day tomorrow... Anyway, today's prompt was to incorporate overhead speech into a poem! Here you all go! 'Spending Time' I heard a woman singing today “I… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-One – ‘Spending Time’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty – ‘Tired Rest’

Definitely not my best - I tried to the prompt for today, but that was even worse. So, without further ado: 'Tired Rest' I’m tired and I don’t know why Except I do, and I bet you know too- It’s been a long day, twenty-four hours, Sixteen of which require me to be awake. Thirty… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty – ‘Tired Rest’
