NAPOWRIMO day #5 “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. Have you seen the little piggies at Scrambled, Not Fried?

  2. I don’t think I’ve written this much since last Napowrimo!

  3. I’ll be back to read your posts…but for now, here is my “day five” post. I wrote it early this morning for my boss, who asked about my “field trip” on Friday…it happens to also fit Poetic Asides Day Five prompt: “a goofy poem”. ~Paula

  4. Day 5 … thank you for allowing me to take advantage of posting my fifth NaPoWriMo poem here:

  5. Prompted by the word “decorated,” I wrote both haiku and tanka. Undecorated


  6. A prompt under the Big Tent combined with a thought and the weather.

  7. Day 5, thinking about how Social Studies and Civics are taught in our schools:

    Peace, Amy

  8. This is what I did today for NaPoWriMo. The Final Comeuppance

  9. Day 5 .. Prompt was a so-called Two for Tuesday prompt… to write a “goofy” and/or a “serious” poem… This prompt grabbed me and I was a bit manic in writing….
