One full week of NaPoWrMo is already gone, but no worries because we still have three more to go. Yay! I love this month!

The daily prompt for today was to start by reading James Tate’s poem “The List of Famous Hats.” Then I had to write a poem that plays with the idea of a list.

I never know exactly where these prompts will take me, which why I never grow tired of participating in this challenge. Every day is a new writing adventure!

Here’s hoping you don’t get so lost in my list poem that you forget to enjoy your morning coffee! I can tell my brain was definitely heading down a lighter path today.


in darkness
in bliss
in ignorance
in sleep

in silence
in ideas
in thought
in the deep

in reverie
in a book
in the world
in life

in love
in work
in struggle
in strife

without hope
without love
without grace

without purpose
without plan
without peace
without place

my mind
my job

for words—
Oh wait,
I’m not.

—Carla Jeanne
