NaPoWriMo Day 6 – Prompt for April 6, 2015

April 5, 2015

Welcome to Day 6 of NaPoWriMo.  The dreaded back to the grind Monday for most.  But don’t cry me a river about it. . . no… instead write me a river.  I’ll explain the prompt in a moment.


An interesting website you might want to explore is Google Poetics.   If you get stuck in your writing and feel like you’ve entered some Kafka-esque time-out zone… the site might be just the goose your muse needs.  Check out the site.  Google Poetics here.



DAY 6  – NaPoWriMo Prompt for  April 6 2015 


River names.  Gather a list of rivers… perhaps begin with Rivers that are close to where you live and expand to your state or perhaps the place where you were born or even to the place where your ancestors came from.    Use the names of at least 4 Rivers in your poem… but not as Rivers… as Names of other things…or as substitute names for other things.   Be creative.   Can you use a River name in every other line of your poem?


Looking forward to seeing what some of you come up with for this one.   Have fun.



Write poems inspired by your choice of selected songs.

“Why can’t he sing clear in that

Booty Rest song?” say’s he.

Budapest Sillybites

By Teresa Jarmick


I won’t give it up

My beautiful Castillo

My studio piano

Over you, only you.


Treasure chest is me

Myself, I will always be

Never you, never you.
