#NaPoWriMo 2016 Day Ten
The prompt today was easier since yesterday’s was so hard and required so much vulnerability and bravery. Today’s challenge was to write a “book spine” poem. This involved me taking a look at my kindle “bookshelf” and writing down titles in order (or rearranging the titles) to create a poem. I used the book titles in their original form. Can you count all the books? How many of them have you read?
If you’ve never tried writing poetry, today would be a great day to give it a go with this prompt. It was just plain old fun. I absolutely loved it! Post yours in the comments below please.
tattoos on the heart
bring a kind of just mercy to life–
a fine balance of purple hibiscus, yellow crocus and a wilder rose.
one thousand gifts
a pavilion of women the same kind of different as me.
release your sacred cows and
ride your blue horses.
at the corner of east and now,
i’ll sing you home.
