#NaPoWriMo 2018 Day Fourteen

Teapot

Teapot
whistles loudly
teacup slips from fingers
happiness turns to confusion
Prosy

NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Dream dictionaries have been around as long as people have had dreams. Interestingly, if you consult a few of them, they nearly always tend to have totally different things to say about specific objects or symbols. Dreams, unlike words themselves, don’t seem to be nicely definable! At any rate, today’s prompt is to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things

Good Afternoon and welcome to day fourteen of #NaPoWriMo which I hope is not too mundane or prosy for you. This was kinda fun as I’ve never actually looked anything up in a dream dictionary before. It said if you dream of a tea kettle (or teapot) your life is too mundane or you’re taking someone for granted. And of course I went over to the thesaurus to look up mundane. It would have worked for line 5, but I like prosy. Would anyone accuse me of being prosy during #NaPoWriMo; I think that would be a nightmare. So no, dear readers, I’m not taking you for granted.

 

Sweet dream
mother makes tea
brings little girl comfort
memory fades away too fast
Suspire

 

NaPoWriMo Day Twenty-four – Masonry Concrete

Masonry

Building up walls
Concrete slabs
Stonework
Bricks
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.
