NaPoWriMo Day 11 Prompt for April 11, 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.
