NaPoWriMo Day Fourteen – Why

Why Little Fly

Is there a way
to write a poem asking why
Is there a way
How can I be quiet and stay
still watching as a little fly
walks on her boot no hue and cry
There is a way            😉


NaPoWriMo Prompt – Today’s prompt (optional, as always) is a little something I’m calling “Twenty Questions.” The idea is to write a poem in which every sentence, except for the last one, is in the form of a question. That’s it! It can be as long or short as you like. The questions can be deep and philosophical (‘what is the meaning of life?’) or routine and practical (‘are you going to eat that?’). Or both!

Happy writing!


Waiting at the bus stop with my youngest this morning, I was watching a fly walk on her boot.  She looked down and did give a hue and cry and then asked me how I could watch the fly without telling her?!  My reply, It was just a little fly.  According to her it was NOT. It was the biggest fly she has ever seen AND it was crawling on her boot! Well did you ask why the fly was on your boot? As she was getting on the bus she said I should write a poem about how the fly was on her boot and I didn’t warn her.  Yeah, the girl really does not like bugs.
