Day 9 of NaPoWriMo, Poetry Prompt, challenge, poems. . .April 9, 2010
DAY 9 NaPoWrimo 2010. Day 9!!!!
It’s FRIDAY !!! April 9th 2010
Okay so in addition to Poem Starters and the collaborative Septolets and prompt challenge poems I’m writing every day this month… I’ve come up with some daily writing prompts as well. So.. check them at the Dash30 site. Google it. It should appear every evening between 9 and 10 p.m. PST. (barring technical glitches). You should also check out what Read-Write members concoct on a daily basis as well. You can do extra poems for the prompts, somehow combine the two or more prompts into one challenge or ignore the prompts all together and just create a poem and post it.
I’m also doing Script Frenzy this year (with a goal of writing at least 100 pages in 30 days).
Happy Writing !!!!

Another day inside my head
I can’t quite forget
but beyond foolish if I
do not forgive.
SEPTOLET FOR APRIL 9TH
(using two different words from my prompt Picture & Beneath)
under front porch
beneath blood moon
Here’s today’s prompt…(which hopefully barring technical glitches will be posted the night before at the Dash 30 site) and my poem.
MY Day 9 PROMPT
The sixth word in the next (or top) paragraph of the book, magazine or newspaper article you are reading is now the first word of your poem for today (if the sixth word is an article like the.. and…to etc. then skip to the next word; I also give you permission to use the 5th or 7th word if it is much better than the 6th one). In the next paragraph choose either the 3rd, 5th, or 7th word. This word will be used in the 5th line of your poem.
The first line of your poem has one word
The next has two words
The next three words.
Go to at least 8 words (8 lines).
And if inspired continue to 12 words
You could do several stanzas, of 8 lines or 12 lines if you wind up creating
something that demands it.
Try it it out…
My words are: Again (1st) Praise (5th line)
(And as a variation I used Again as the first and last words in the poem)
by Christopher J. Jarmick
Everything I do
For what purpose; goal ?
Not for fleeting, temporary praise
None of us stay very long
We have our moments, good, bad, awkward
I want to love you all over again
winter of your
flowing golden hair; smile
those giddily loving eyes praising,
nothing taken for granted, everything fresh
each moment precious, each touch, stoke, kiss.l
I want to love you all over again.
