Saturday April 28th, 2012 NaPoWriMo Day 28/30

You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick . . .. You’re back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps . . . so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in.–Dylan Thomas

Three more poems to write for NaPoWriMo 2012. For those that have found time, inspiration or taken on challenges and prompts to write a poem even though at times it was difficult or nearly impossible to do so—CONGRATULATIONS!!! If you’ve done so every single day or just a few days—but you pushed yourself and got something down on paper—WOW. You Win!!! Write a few more!!!


QUOTES. You’ve notice perhaps that I’ve included lots of quotes in my daily Prompt suggestions. Quotes can really inspire you….they can also be good sources to leap into the writing of a poem.

So…use a couple of quotes I’ve shared or a couple of your own personal favorite quotes and incorporate them into the poem you write today. If you use the quotes within the poem (credit them ). If you re-invent the quote within your poem…share the original inspirational quotes at the end of your poem.

Happy Writing.

Day 27 Prompt Poem (write a Parody)

BEIBER, BEIBER (with apologies to William Blakes: The Tyger)
By Christopher J. Jarmick

Beiber, Beiber burning bright
On the stage this Friday night
What bargain could I earn
To see this pop-star truly burn

Some devil bargained for his soul
Created teeny-bopper troll
More than just one-hit wonder
Please take this muppet down-under

I don’t care how cute his hair
Of if there’s any talent there
Beiber’s appeal is smooth not rough
But one Justin (Timberlake) is enough.

Little girls scream Beiber Beiber
As he croons they feverishly cheer
Eyes twinkle, million dollar smile
But his insipid music is vile.

Beiber, Beiber burning bright
On the stage this Friday night
What bargain could I earn
To see this pop-star truly burn

Teresa’s Prompt Day 25 Poem (an epistolary or letter Poem)

Pocketbook Greetings
By Teresa Jarmick

Dear Purse,
Fellow traveler
and carrier of secrets,
close companion under
my arm, next to my heart,
zippered cradle of me.
I thank you for
your selfless service.
Devoted toter of
wallet cough drops, tampons,
receipts, lipstick, keys, phone
pens, hair pick
paint chips and
Christmas list
You make me smile.

The root of the word Poetry is from the Greek ποιέω (poieō), “‘I
make’”). , poiesis, meaning a “making” or ‘creation’
