#NaPoWriMo 2022 Day Eighteen

I beg your pardon

Inspiration wanes
in April poetry begs
me to write daily

Always reply, I
decline for secret reasons
make them beg for why
(borrowed from E.B. White)

Kiss me once, twice, thrice
Write poetry of our love
Beg for more romance

Another Monday
writing poetry in bed
chores beg to be done

Need one more answer
Laundry remains in dryer
Begs for attention

NaPoWriMo PromptLast but not least, here is today’s prompt (optional, as always). It’s based on Faisal Mohyuddin’s poem “Five Answers to the Same Question.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.

Good afternoon and welcome to day eighteen of napowrimo. I took the #haikuchallenge word for today, beg and wrote five haikuesque answers. As an extra bonus today here is a link to the haiku pea podcast. Today’s episode is punctuation.

Semicolons
Chance to catch your breath;
Before drowning

As my long time readers know, my family has been affected by suicide. I learned about the semicolon project several years ago. World semicolon day was Saturday April 16. But always remember there is more to your story. Semicolons Important Punctuation. Thank you for taking the time to read my contribution today. I appreciate all my readers.
