NaPoWriMo 2011 Poems & Prompt for April 12, 2011 Day 12 of 30April 12, 2011
It’s day 12 of NaPoWriMo, or April 12th and my prompt suggestion is
Write a twisted tribute to a poet you admire.
(twisted tribute? An affectionate satire, –appreciation of someone’s work. It should be somewhat upbeat, somewhat flattering—remember you like this poet you are mimicking or doing an homage to. Yes the poet can be living, current, little known or famous and/or dead)
Today’s form is. . . NONE…
Free… wild and free form today…. Because… it’s my birthday and that’s how it shall be.
Teresa and I wrote a spontaneous poem based on something we saw while doing a sight-seeing drive in Victoria and driving into a wooded area. Clearly we knew who should be reading it and with what voice… Then I wrote an additional one.
City Boy, in the woods, in a car, with Teresa
(with apologies to Robert Lashley)
Not afraid of people, Bambi.
Full of wood ticks, Bambi
Lyme disease, Bambi
Stay AWAY, Bambi.
With apologies to a poet/publisher I know…
I’m a mix of wit and form;
political commentary storm.
Apricot rose; alley poet –swoon;
My turn to read real soon!
Ode to Scotch Tape, Pen, Sparrow

AND AN EXTRA. . .
POEM STARTER 1411
BY Christopher J. Jarmick
You woke up
Poem fragment in your head
You didn’t write this one down
It’s gone now.
You didn’t write it down…
