Read a great poem
Don’t let it be ho hum
Poetry opens doors
The world can be yours
No – never
Will I endeavor
to read whatsoever
Quoth the child evermore
NaPoWriMo Prompt Day 29 – Today, I’d like to challenge you to take one of your favorite poems and find a very specific, concrete noun in it. For example, if your favorite poem is this verse of Emily Dickinson’s, you might choose the word “stones” or “spectre.” After you’ve chosen your word, put the original poem away and spend five minutes free-writing associations – other nouns, adjectives, etc. Then use your original word and the results of your free-writing as the building blocks for a new poem.
Good Morning! Yes, it’s still Saturday morning here in Arizona. As I was contemplating the napowrimo prompt for today, I went over to my wordpress following reader page. I saw a post from elPitchford aka Bryan that today is National Great Poetry Reading day. It helps with today’s prompt as most people will pick a poem from a well known, shall I say great, poet. Then I told Gretchen it’s national great poetry reading day so go find a poem to read. To which she responded, no, never. And of course, I thought of The Raven. And yes, I know nevermore isn’t a noun, but I did stick in door for chamber door. 😉

Good stuff! You’ve got my follow. Check out my comedy blog and give it a follow if you like it!
I didn’t realize you were creating your own prompts this entire month! Wow! I like prompts for my writing dry spells. This year I followed Robert Lee Brewer’s prompt challenges on his Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides blog. I also followed Word x Word’s 30/30 poetry prompts.
So weird seeing my name published on a webpage I didn’t write. Thanks for the link!
I’m following the prompts from NaPoWriMo.net. No one has linked to your blog yet? Glad to share your site.
