NaPoWriMo 2011 Poem & Prompt for April 24, 2011 24/30

April 24, 2011

Easter Sunday NaPoWriMo time.  Day 24.

Your prompt today is  EMPTY.

Do something with that as an idea, as a word as a concept.  Perhaps what it means, represents, how it feels, how it looks, as a condition, as a state of being, as an overwhelming challenge that begs for something else but… it’s not there.. it’s empty.

Free form, free verse , any form or no form.


By  Chris & Teresa Jarmick

Before the tide comes in

After the ice melted

Before the grocery store trip

After the marathon finish line was crossed

Before the wine was poured

After the stone was rolled away from the tomb

Before the seed is planted

After the grain is harvested

Before you said hello

There was no after.
