NaPoWriMo, week three

April 15, 2013

  
National Poetry Writing Month, April 15th week three
 
National Poetry Month

      If you are a dreamer come in
      If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
      A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
      If you’re a pretender come sit by my fire…

                Shel Silverstein

 
Welcome to April’s third week of poems. How is your beanstalk growing? We are happy to continue offering this poem basket space to share your poems here. Please post specific links to any poems you write during this week and would like to share, whether posted only here or here and somewhere else as well.
 
Write a poem every day, fine by us.  Write fewer poems than every day, that’s also fine!  No counting here, just a gathering place. Poets and poems welcome here.
 

      As it has been said:
      Love and a cough
      cannot be concealed.
      Even a small cough.
      Even a small love.

        Anne Sexton

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

    Double duty for this poem here. It is the first, the “only” thus far, that I’ve written this April month. Don’t believe in writer’s block. But there is still “not writing” and that’s where I have been. Doing these prompts and this other stuff for WWP – I tell myself, these are my poems in a way. Not a quite convincing consolation. So, here’s one.

      Neil, you have been doing a lot of writing, inspiring others and reflecting the true spirit of Napowrimo, which is to encourage the spread of poetry. I shall be over to look at yours straightaway.

    Wowee, still writing? Pamela I gave myself permission not to write yesterday. 🙂 Not worrying about writing. Still I need to. So there lies the dilemma. Now, if only I could make up for lost time before wandering off for the day…
