Poetry on Draft


NaPoWriMo COLORSI decided to join National Poetry Writing Month this year.

When I first heard of NaPoWriMo, I thought the syllables were  some kind of  Tibetan mantra. Although I don’t quite get the concept of April as “National Poetry Month” (in the U.S.), I am still going to give it a shot. I find the idea of Poetry Month a bit absurd, like “National Child Abuse Awareness Month” (which, ironically, is ALSO April in the U.S. of A).

Are we open to lyrical reality only during that 30-day window?

Does our muse speak to us more in April than in other months?

Are children abused less in April because we are aware of their plight?

Still – I have more than 31 drafts and I need to post them…
so I will be a skeptical participant in Na Po Wri Mo 2014.

      I actually had over 31 drafts on my dashboard and I’m just bringing them out and posting them during April for NaPoWriMo.
      I take a while to come up with each one – not sure I could crank them out one-a-day from scratch.
      I will be finishing some quickly though !
      Thanks for Connecting.

    I totally missed this year’s NaPoWriMo! I’ll make up for it sometime this year! So how did it go for you? :D

    It was lyrically stimulating.
    I found some other great poetry blogs and got more visits than usual so what’s not to like about NaPoWriMo ? Thanks for stopping by Alicia.
