NaPoWriMo Day 25 Prompt for April 25, 2016April 24, 2016
“Most of the writers I know work every day,
in obscurity and close to poverty,
trying to say one thing well and true.
Day in, day out, they labor to find their voice,
to learn their trade, to understand nuance and pace.
And then, facing a sea of rejections, they hear about something
like Barbara Bush’s dog getting a book deal.”
― Timothy Egan
DAY 25 – NaPoWriMo Prompt for April 25, 2016
Welcome to Day 25 of the NaPoWriMo challenge. Use these prompts to inspire you to write a poem each and every day of April.
Write a PAP (a Personal Acrostic Poem)!
Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title. So for the PAP… Spell out your name (first and last… or one or the other) and reveal something about yourself in the poem.
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.
My Day 23 Prompt Poem (A Loop poem)
Like butter poured. . .
poured over hotcakes, in a slow steady stream.
Stream water gracefully glides,
glides by and we hear –
hear the honk of geese;
geese coming in for a landing,
landing on the water;
waters of March.
March out like a lamb, he smiles,
smiles because. . .
because he’s sharing,
sharing this with her.
