National Poetry Month


I can't find a prompt I like

so I will write impromptu

not so bad that's how I write

it's kinda hard not to

Author's Notes/Comments: 

It's National Poetry Month #NaPoMo once again... April 2021 Day One...I was looking for poetry prompts cuz I intend to write a poem a day for national poetry month. I found a few but didn't like any of them so just did it my way...impromptu....


Some people call home the place they were born

Some are home wherever they roam

Home is more a state of mind

that often can't be defined

you know it when you feel it

just somehow seems to fit

Home is where the heart is

It's where you hang your hat

It's some place you're comfortable at

WPOM poetry prompt day 30 National Poetry Month...write a poem about home...

A Better Way to Live

Suffering is no fun

happens to everyone

Try to focus on the good

Oh if only we all could

Pain is hard to ignore

hits right down to the core

Try to think positive

It's a better way to live

ode to old shoes

A favorite pair of shoes

is hard to throw away

but sometimes you have to

What else can I say

When You Forget to Breathe

The space between breaths

is hard to pace

when you forget to breathe

I sometimes feel

like I'm holding my breath

like I forget to breathe

then i hyperventilate

and panic attack comes through

When you forget to breathe

what is one to do

Cooking My First Meal

I have no recollection

of cooking my first meal

I guess it just goes back too far

and really no big deal

Author's Notes/Comments: 

WPOM poetry prompt for day 26 National Poetry Month...write a poem about the first meal you cooked for someone else.....apparently this prompt did nothing for me...apparently it doesn't matter to is just not important to me..I have no idea...a lot of these prompts seem to be more like writers block to me for some strange reason...very weird...

A Spiderweb

Sunlight on a spiderweb

nothing comes to mind

Dewdrops on a spiderweb

you must see sometime

Something Rising from the Deep

Something rising from the deep

often find it in your sleep

Pay attention to your dreams

more important than it seems

A Hidden Alleyway

From a hidden alleyway

many stories come

Most are best just not to say

so this poem's done
