NaPoWriMo National Poetry Writing Month Day 6 Prompt for Sunday, April 6, 2014 Posted April 5, 2014

April 5, 2014

“Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.”
Mark Strand

 

Welcome to Day 6 of the NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) challenge. The goal is to write 30 poems in 30 days for April. It’s Sunday, a good day to catch-up if you need to. What matters is the effort to write a poem every day. Control a little time every day and devote it to writing a poem.

 

Below the prompt meant for tomorrow you’ll find what I came up for the April 5th Prompt.

 

PROMPT for April 6th 2014

 

Prompt: PET NAMES

Sometimes people are very creative when it comes to naming their pets. Some names have special significance. Feel free to let this prompt inspire you to write a poem of any type in any manner the muse leads you. You could remember a favorite pet no longer with us or a new one that recently joined your family. You could write something humorous or something heartwarming. It’s entirely up to you.

 

What I wrote for yesterday’s prompt:

 

April 5th Prompt was to write a Septolet — A syllable type Sepolet and a Word Septolet. I wrote several.
