NAPOWRIMO day #12 “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. Thanks for providing this space for all us during NaPoWriMo,


  2. Day 12, napo prompt 11 and bigtent prompt 2 for this week, combined – sort of!

  3. Somehow I forgot to post this yesterday: Befuddled Limerick.

    And here’s the political limerick I just wrote: Open Limerick To President Obama. Thanks!

  4. Started this poem a couple of years ago. Finished [up to this point] today.

    Dancin’ Machine

  5. Thanks again, Rob, for providing this prompt-free forum! And thanks to everyone who’s visited me during NaPoWriMo.

    “We’ll Do It One Day”

  6. Day 12 prompt from Poetic Asides was to write in a “form” (or not). I chose “epistle”. Here’s my attempt…

    I’ll be back to read!! 🙂

  7. I readily admit that I am too damned busy this week, and I’m falling back on short forms:

  8. I combined the prompts from NaPoWriMo (memories from an old photo) and Poetic Asides (a form poem) and wrote a lune. I included the old picture that prompted the wonderful memory.

  9. I tried the 40 line, one sentence poem last night but hesitated to post it. Now that I read it again, I think it might not be that bad so decided to share it here.
    I hope you like it.

  10. Thanks so much for giving us prompt-free space to explore this month. This is what I did today – compare worldviews on mental health with a dear old friend.

    Peace, Amy

  11. Form and Anti-Form
    2 poems responding to PA prompt

    Shadorma Dances & Shandra Collapses

  12. Prompt was form and anti- form
    I self challenged to get through as many of 30 +. forms listed over at PA….
    Think I wrote 15 poems in different forms….
    Retitled last attempt as Shadorma Dances and Shandra Collapses
    Have always imagined ” Shadorma” as an exotic woman
