NaPoWriMo Day Twenty-four – Masonry Concrete


Building up walls
Concrete slabs
Craft layers to shape


NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now, our (optional, as always) prompt! Peter Roberts has been participating in NaPoWriMo for several years now at his blog, Masonry Design. He has the charming and odd distinction of having only written poems about masonry. Today, I challenge you to do the same (for one day, at least), and to write a poem that features walls, bricks, stones, arches, or the like. If that sounds a bit hard, remember that one of Robert Frost’s most famous poems was about a wall. Happy writing!

I was browsing the Internet yesterday and found Teacup Dictionary Poem.  It looked like fun and I haven’t written a concrete poem for napowrimo yet.  When I told my husband today’s prompt was to write a poem on masonry, he said, You should write concrete. Ha!  Masonry – Concrete.  He knew there was a poetry form called concrete, but he did not know it was another name for a shape poem.  I told him if my idea worked it would be a masonry concrete poem.  But I doubt anyone wants to drink out of a brick teacup.
