NaPoWriMo Day 15 Prompt for April 15, 2016April 14, 2016
“The worst thing you can do is censor yourself
as the pencil hits the paper. You must not edit until
you get it all on paper.
If you can put everything down, stream-of-consciousness,
you’ll do yourself a service.”
― Stephen Sondheim

My Day 13 Prompt Poem (a favorite quote or two to inspire a poem)
Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.
– Carl Sandburg
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
Chasing the Echo
By Christopher J. Jarmick
The last light of the day paints the clouds
before the monochromatic spectrum
In the quiet,
until breath by breath
we calm and listen
to our heart.
It is in dark desperation,
with little to lose,
we listen to the music of the air;
and find the creativity needed
to see the light.
