NAPOWRIMO day #3 “Free Write”

During this month of April, which is National Poetry Writing Month (NAPOWRIMO), Writer’s Island will NOT be posting our regular weekly prompts. Our regular weekly prompts will resume Saturday, May 7th.

Instead, this is a “FREE WRITE” day, as will each day be in April. Writer’s Island is NOT suggesting a daily writing prompt during NAPOWRIMO. Please feel free to post a link here in the comments section to whatever poem or poems you may have written today.

Just as this post did today, each day of NAPOWRIMO, the “Free Write” post will open at 12:01 AM US Eastern Daylight Time. The current and the prior day’s post will remain visible on the main blog page. You can access earlier NAPOWRIMO days by selecting April in the “Past Prompts” drop down in right side bar.

Whether you are following specific daily NAPOWRIMO prompts of some sort, or just writing a poem each day (or most/some days) of NAPOWRIMO – please post a link to your poems here. At this time, I know • Poetic Asides and • Big Tent Poetry will be offering prompts for each day. But you don’t need prompts to write a poem each day.

If you wish, please consider Writer’s Island your NAPOWRIMO 2011 ‘linking hub’. Just enter your name and email address in the comments heading, and the URL of whatever poem you’ve written for that day, in the comment box. Nothing else needs to be written in the comment box if you don’t want to.

As always, if you are a first time participant, your first entry will be moderated – after your first time, there will be no more moderating. April is NAPOWRIMO – so poem away and enter your links here. Have fun…!!! 🙂

  1. My contribution for NaPoWriMo day no. 3, Freewheeling.

  2. Early morning, and so I wrote. Thanks for this opportunity to write and to celebrate!

    • “Together, let them rise into something other” – I love that line. I like your take on the prompt, how thought becomes action, moving into something larger than yourself. It is beautiful and full of hope. (Still can’t comment on your blog).

  3. Here’s one I wrote yesterday to a prompt at Poetic Asides to write a postcard poem:

  4. Marian

    I picked up a prompt from another site.

  5. This hurt to write.
    It hurts to read.
    And I’m glad for both.
    Poetry – love it.

  6. Thanks for the opportunity to link to these three haiku: Minding My Haiku.

  7. I hope it’s okay to post again today. Instead of haiku, this time it’s a new limerick and a limerick prompt. (Every Sunday or Monday I post a new Limerick-Off and Limerick of the Week contest.) Here’s my latest: Fit To Be Tied Limerick.

    Perhaps some National Poetry Month participants may even find it to be good fodder for one of their daily poems. Everybody’s welcome, even if (perhaps even especially if) you’re new to limerick writing.


  8. Here’s my day attempt at a poem from the Day 2 NaPoWriMo prompt.

  9. Day Three….in response to Poetic Asides prompt: the world without me

    See ya tomorrow!! 🙂

  10. I wrote from the Poetic Asides prompt..not an easy one for sure.

  11. Linda

    A prompt from Poetic Asides for Day 3 of April


  12. I admit I’m using prompts for help. I have a few of my own sitting around…

    An idea I initially liked turned sour, so
    today turned a tad frivolous around a Big Tent prompt.
