NaPoWriMo 2011 Poem & Prompt for April 24, 2011 24/30April 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.
Poetry is Everything
