NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for our prompt (as always, it’s optional!). In keeping with the mysterious quality of the number 13, today I challenge you to write a riddle poem. This poem should describe something without ever naming it. Perhaps each line could be a different metaphor for the same object? Maybe the title of the poem can be the “answer” to the riddle. The result could be a bit like our Day One poems of negation, but the lines don’t need to be expressed in negatives.

And here is a riddle for you, as many other states are doing, Arizona is transitioning to common core. This week is the first time students will be taking the new AzMerit tests. Rachael, a junior in high school, apparently has to take the freshmen – junior tests. She will be testing for four hours straight for three days. Today Gretchen starts out with the writing exam. She asked me if I thought it would be an essay. I told her if it is write a riddle asking what is an essay. 😉
