DAY 5  – NaPoWriMo Prompt for  Wednesday April 5, 2017

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of

Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.”

Rabindranath Tagore


Welcome to Day 5 of the National Poetry Writiing Month challenge.  We are writing a poem every day.  It’s a good habit/discipline to have.  I approach the challenge as an exercise.  Sometimes the stretching I do because of writing from prompts unlocks a myriad of ideas that give me something to expand on at a later date.


Prompt for April 5th!


Write a poem that gives unconventional advice.  Any style, any form.


Have fun!


“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

T.S. Eliot


Day 3  Prompt Poem

Here’s two Poems I wrote to the random word prompt

Prompt 3  –  Create a poem from a Random Word List of 10 words (use at least 6 words in 6 lines or less).  3 lists of words were offered.


10 Random Words from List 1

By Christopher J. Jarmick

The abstract lover’s gossip involving being forced to beg for a cause

mentioned in the reporter’s bulletin without sentiment,

completely captivated me.


20 Random words from list 1 and 2

By Christopher J. Jarmick

The judicial reporters bulletin, written without sentiment,

about the woman trapped in a toll booth, captivated me.

The quoted abstract art lover’s gossip forced me to think visual about how

the woman begged not to be mistreated or harmed purely based on her race.



Keep Writing!
