The Day After ~ Post NaPoWriMo 2020

I have participated in National Poetry Writing Month every year since 2014 and have met the challenge of writing a daily poem in April for each year. Completing the challenge this year seemed harder than in past years – in fact, a couple of my poems were about writer’s block – but inspiration from other poets, as well as following other poetry prompts, helped me complete the challenge.

Writing every day, as well as reading the poems of fellow participants, seemed to consume more time than in previous years, at the expense of time usually spent reading the words of poets I follow on a daily basis. I have some catching up to do, but the sun is out, it’s not raining, and I’m going kayaking.

poet’s mind is exhausted
writing challenge done

This is my response to Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge
No. 175, #ThemePrompt
, where the theme is “The Day After.”

  1. I hope you enjoyed the kayaking!
    It’s funny how we put these burdens on ourselves. I think often with these things–the various challenges–it is difficult to keep up with reading all the others, more so that writing a poem–and April gets extra crazy. Congratulations though on getting through the month.
