NaPoWriMo / GloPoWriMo 2018 – Day 22 – “The Stars Spell Out Your Name” by David Ellis

Hey there everyone.

I’ll keep it short and sweet again tonight, while I continue on with my NaPoWriMo madness, which will be continuing into May now but I will produce thirty poems without fail!

The prompt for Day 22 was to take one of a set of impossible phrases and make this impossible situation possible.

I ending up choosing “The stars cannot rearrange themselves in the sky” for my particular inspiration.

I’ve also experimented with another new form that I have not tried before. It is called a ‘Rhyme royal’ (aka ‘Rime royale’) and consists of seven lines of ten syllables each, with a rhyming structure of ABABBCC.

I picked this form out of a list that I have shared earlier in the month, here is the link to this very useful collection and explanation of poetic forms:-

List of Forms and Types of Poem

Here we go then for the poem, thanks for reading and hope you enjoy it 🙂

“The Stars Spell Out Your Name” by David Ellis

Face fate not with a yawn but with a roar

Mysteries making messes of senses

Relationships matter, be who you are

Universal elements bond strangers

Stars spell out your name in vivid colours

Humanity drives us to sing and dance

Our first kiss should never be left to chance
