NaPoWriMo April 29, 2020  Prompt for day 30 and a bonus

April 29, 2020

I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.”Anaïs Nin


This is it!  NaPoWriMo 2020 is almost yesterday.  Do keep the habit of writing every day.  Do read each and every day.  In a few days you may discover some more posts on this blog.  There is a Writing Prompts page available on your right.   Hope you’ve had fun and challenged yourself.  Keep writing.


Promp 30


Lie down and look up at the sky… are there clouds… stars…. Write about what you see, what you imagine, what you feel, the shape of things that are or could be. . .



Make a found poem from some of the lines you wrote in your NaPoWriMo poems.  Use at least 8 different poems and write a poem at least 10 lines long.  Yes you can combine half lines too.


If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it;

Every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.”Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Poem Starter CV19 – 29

By Christopher J. Jarmick


What can we take for granted again

and when can we take it for granted.

Is there a cost for too quickly

taking things for granted again.

Will normal be new again?

Whose new normal will it be?


“Real poetry, is to lead a beautiful life. To live poetry is better than to write it.”Basho
