NaPoWriMo Prompt – Our (optional, as always) prompt for the day is taken from one of the prompts that Kwoya Fagin Maples suggests in here interview: a poem that addresses the future, answering the questions “What does y(our) future provide? What is your future state of mind? If you are a citizen of the “union” that is your body, what is your future “state of the union” address?”

Good morning and welcome to day eleven of #NaPoWriMo and my future fortune. Okay, yesterday was somewhat aggravating poetry wise. At least I have a wonderful husband who went out to get me coffee bright and early in the morning. He didn’t get home yesterday until after 11pm. I was up late and hopped over to napowrimo.net to read today’s prompt. I went to sleep thinking it would be another difficult poem day. But when I woke up, I remembered the fortune I got over the weekend. We had P.F. Chang’s take out for Gretchen’s birthday Sunday night and I was told what my later years will bring.

Today all I had to do was put it in poetry form. Since it took me forever to write my poem yesterday, I did not write a haiku for the #haikuchallenge on Twitter. Today’s word is impact if you haven’t figured it out since I used it in both versions of my haiku. Then this morning, Shawn ate another fortune cookie and was excited; It says I’m going to be rich. Yep, I already knew that because I’m going to be a good person and give our wealth away. 😉 Shawn said it would have to wait til he’s gone. We’ll see…

  1. You can find riches in other things so maybe it meant philanthropy will make you rich (unless of course it specified money – my fortune cookies are never that specific).

    Conversely, a lot of philanthropists are rich and that’s how they are able to do so much . . . so maybe that’s it.

    I enjoyed your haikus!
