NaPoWriMo Prompt for April 19, 2017

April 18, 2017

DAY 19  – NaPoWriMo Prompt for  Wednesday, April 19, 2017

“Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry.”

Mary Oliver

 

Welcome to Day 19.   Although I have little time to relax and write with so much going on in running a bookstore, I steal a few minutes here and there and find that focusing even for a few minutes on writing has much needed therapeutic benefits.   Even though some writes are nearly worthless scribbles, the habit, the discipline, the attention to the goal (writing something, anything every day) makes it possible to find a line or two worth saving for later development.

 

Prompt for Day 19 –

Look at words on boxes of snacks, cereal, frozen foods.  Choose three at a time exactly as you find them.  (Even ingredients) Use at least one set of three words in each line of your work.  Make sure it is at least 6 lines.

 

“Poems are a hotline to our hearts, and we forget this emotional power at our peril.”

Andrew Motion

 

The Prompt for day 17 was to create at least 3 original Acronyms.

Here’s mine:

I nterminable chaos and drama, often created by
