NaPoWriMo Day One

April Fool’s

Rachael and Gretchen poke
Mornings in no hurry
Wake up for school

Rushing around the house
“Woe is me,” trickery
Mom is no fool


NaPoWriMo Prompt – Our prompts are, as always, optional. If you have your own plans for generating poems, or find prompts elsewhere that suit you better, that’s just fine. Our prompts are there just to help those who are having trouble getting inspired – if you’re full up on inspiration, there’s no need to follow them. With that out of the way, I’ve chosen something I hope will be fun and simple, to ease you into your first day. Today, I’d like you to go to Reb Livingston’s Bibliomancy Oracle. Clear your mind, push the button, and then write a poem based on the quotation that the oracle provides. Happy writing!

My quote: Forget that, you bozoer of a wineglass, whom Shepherd in the kinglet disputes.

Say what?! April Fool’s!  I read this after a not so fun morning of getting the girls ready for school.  Then I check the prompt for day one of NaPoWriMo.  Wow right out of the gate and I’m the featured participant. 😀 Thanks, Maureen!  The name should be Veronica though.  Where is that wineglass? Anyone?

  1. I’ll join you though we have a problem in the hour of the day, so to say, you are probably into your early afternoon 1.4.2014, I’m early morning 2.4.2014. But what the heck. I will join you for that wine. Well done you Victoria!! ooops Veronica.
    I actually went to bed very late last night. Got my quote and will work on it – after – I’ve done a few chores or nothing will get done for the day. Sadly I will away two days over the week-end but I intend to do them when I come back. Hope that’s not cheating.

    • Funny when I wrote this it wasn’t even 9AM here. But it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere. 😉

      And no that is not cheating. As long as poetry is being written no worries if some days you write more than one to get up to thirty.
