One week into National Poetry Writing Month – woohoo!
Time to break out the party hats and start spinning those disco balls – let’s keep on rocking!
For the Day 7 prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ, the prompt is to write a poem of gifts and joy. What would you give yourself, if you could have anything? What would you give someone else?
The answer is easy – cake!
(But that doth butter no parsnips or helps me to write a poem, so I will probably end up “finding” something else…while eating cake of course!)
Here is the link to the prompt if you too fancy giving it a go.
I actually gifted myself the opportunity to write another found poem and used inspiration from an earlier NaPoWriMo prompt to select poet Larry Levis as my muse.
I used his poem “Signs” and you can find the lyrics to that particular poem here:-
And now here is my own found poem, thank you for reading 🙂
“The Open Road” by David Ellis
All the roads that are long
They all open the inside shell a little
If I hear a voice forever ask
My important part of this
It’s the refusing to grin and lie still
So after I stay up late
My feet tap
They begin a dance
Which will outlive Spring
