NaPoWriMo, week two

April 8, 2013

National Poetry Writing Month, April 8th week two
National Poetry MonthApril, week two, are you getting your poem pace? We continue to offer you this place, this “poem basket” to collect and share your poems for the writing challenge of this month. Be they poem ideas all your own, or prompted by something you read somewhere else, all your poems are welcome here. Just post a specific link to your poems here.
Write a poem every day, fine by us.  Write fewer poems than every day, that’s also fine!  Leave your poem links for what you write.  No counting here, just a gathering place.

      Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

        Robert Frost

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

        T.S. Eliot

During April We Write Poems will continue doing our usual Thursday weekly poem prompts.

    A lovely prompt from Ms Quickly inspired this:

    This is sort of a two fer, as my regular daily was inspired by the linked piece to Miz Q’s prompt (which is on blogspot). But for ease of comment leaving I will also post the longer piece on my long verse WP site.

    Go up or down on either WP or That Other Blog site to find other Miz Q prompted piece or other dailies. Enjoy.

    This was inspired by Miz Quickly’s prompt from yesterday. Thanks for providing this place for us, WWP

      Pamela, I think the idea of this space is in the spirit of sharing our work. Hopefully our work is inspirational. We just need to trust in the silence of being received. I mean, the idea of a dedicated month of breathing poems, isn’t it worth celebrating?

      I’d like to share what I read this morning, from William Stafford:

      “We all share, in art. And to be worthy artists we must be ready to look around, give credit where we feel it belongs, help each other maintain that sense of community that will maximise whatever vision we are able to find and share.”

    Here is my day 9 poem for a translation prompt from “Poets and Writers”. I see no future in French to English translations for me. It was still fun though. Thanks for being here.

    This is my second poem toda
    totally off any prompt, just one of those poems that forced itself o me.

    Sorrym, Neil,I’ve missed the prompt for this week – too busy writing for Napo to sit outside and listen (and too darned cold) . .

    Limerick Stews
    By Madeleine Begun Kane

    A bootmaker grouses and stews
    And grumbles while guzzling his booze.
    He’ll beef day and night:
    Seems his wife loves to fight,
    And her meat dishes taste just like shoes.

    Limerick Stews — Limerick-Off Monday

    Here’s the first poem I wrote for Napowrimo 2/30, homies. Hope you all enjoy.
