NaPoWriMo Day 27, 2018

“Literature is strewn with the wreckage of those who have minded beyond reason the opinion of others.” ― Virginia Woolf

Before we mention today’s prompt…. Let me remind you that Saturday is Independent Bookstore Day.   Try to visit three independent bookstores near you in the next few days and of course buy something if you can.  In the Seattle/Western Washington area ( and in many other areas) you can earn a coupon by visiting 3 bookstores!   Read.  Read a lot and support your friendly neighborhood bookstores too!  BookTree’s Independent bookstore day page!  

NaPoWriMo – 30/30 –  Poem-a-Day prompt for April 27, 2018

“You cannot hope to sweep someone else away by the force of your writing until it has been done to you.” ― Stephen King

From Brendan (Cosmic Egg) McBreen :  The writing is on the wall, find a piece of graffiti or a bumper sticker and write about that line, include the line in your poem.

Keep Writing!

“You don’t write about the horrors of war. No. You write about a kid’s burnt socks lying in the road.” ― Richard Price

My prompt poem for the 25th –  Ted Kooser inspired

Kooser Apples

By Christpher J. Jarmick

Somewhere

under the canopy of billions

of twinkling lights

beyond the shimmering nova light

of the busy city

behind the white picket fence

and lace curtains made by hand

nearly 100 years ago

a saucepan lid shimmies

letting steam escape

and fill the kitchen with the

sweet, fresh smell of apples

and cinnamon turning into what

you crave right now as you read this:

Applesauce.
