I started this blog in 2014, to participate in National Poetry Writing month. After meeting that challenge, I continued to write sporadically, then more frequently, and, finally, almost consistently for the next five years.
Well, National/Global Poetry Writing Month 2019 has come and gone, and once again I have met the challenge of writing a poem for every day of the month. I actually managed to meet the daily prompt of Maureen Thorson at napowrimo.net 24 times, with 51 posts and 55 new poems – including 14 haiku/senryu/tanka and 3 haibun. There were several new forms for me:
• abecedarian poem
• list poem
• meta poem (probably not my first)
I posted 2 video poems and I tried something different with 3 poems that included audio recordings.
As usual, I enjoyed reading the prompt responses from other poets at napowrimo.net, reading as many as possible. Thank you to all who read my poetry this past month and especially to all who commented.
