NaPoWriMo Day 11 Prompt for April 11, 2016April 10, 2016
“Digression is the soul of wit.
Take the philosophic asides away
from Dante, Milton or Hamlet’s father’s ghost
and what stays is dry bones.”
― Ray Bradbury
DAY 11 – NaPoWriMo Prompt for April 11, 2016
Welcome to Day 11 of the NaPoWriMo challenge. Use these prompts to inspire you to write a poem each and every day of April.
Write an 8 line or longer poem about anything you would like. Substitute words with the names of colors. At least one substitute word per line of the poem. Don’t use color names as a person’s name or intentionally or use a color word that might describe a mood (blue, black etc.). Example Don’t turn: ‘Bob entered the living room’ into ‘Red entered the blue room’; instead, something like this: ‘Bob entered the living yellow.’ Get the idea?
For those living anywhere near Western Washington you might want to look at the new Poetry Day of the Week page that you’ll find in the upper right corner under PAGES. A couple of times this month you may also find my Poetry Northwest announcements in between the NaPoWriMo posts.
If you post the poems on your blog or anywhere using this prompt… send me a link.
Day 9 Prompt Poem (write a Kasa aka Gasa)
Crosswalk Kasa (aka Gasa)
By Christopher J. Jarmick
Please wait for green, don’t make a mad dash
Colors change, light creates shadows
Cleats of golf shoes, hooves on asphalt
Lunch specials, red wine poured
Sleet pours from sky, run for cover
Wonder where time begins, how it makes sense.
