NAPOWRIMO day #21 “Free Write”

We’re 3 weeks in and rolling!!!

If you’re starting to flag, here’s a friendly invigorating splash!
• • •

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 • the NAPOWRIMO site and • 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 the splash and the space, it was one of those days,


    • I have great difficulty in leaving comments on your blog, James: here will have to do. I said something like ‘how brave you are sticking to the ghazal rules through 4 couplets. And even making sense!’

  2. Tears, a message in a bottle (of sorts).

  3. Here’s my eating-pulling-stuff-out-of-my-mouth-love poem:
    Doggy Love (WordPress) or Doggy Love (Blogspot)

  4. Aah! The splash feels so good on my face! Here is my message in a bottle.

  5. Still sick as a dog, but it did get me some inspiration! Amy

  6. Yes, another one, thanks to Brenda’s “Beyond the Bozone” and Poetic Asides’ “Message in a Bottle.” Pneumonia is good for my muse. Who knew?! Amy

  7. Today’s (for now):

    flickering puddle
    exposing itself
    as pure open fire
    casts ferocity
    off over dinner

    From Big Tent Poetry and Book of Kells prompts.

  8. I used the prompts from both Poets United and Poetic Asides:

  9. Here is one more from Poetic Asides’ Two For Tuesday Prompt: You Intoxicate Me!. Yet to come up with an ant-love poem.

  10. Day 21…

    Poetic Asides prompt: second thoughts
    Theme Thursday prompt: television

    Here’s my post that covers both:

  11. Here’s my response to Poetic Asides prompt: Second Thoughts
    Now to finally do some reading! 🙂

  12. My Day 21 ‘s

    12 Poems ….. Varying subjects and styles from a twenty year old bride in an overheated hallway….to a second look at ” the girlfriend” and a pass through wondering what if Hitler had been treated as a simple ranter with some serious mental health issues, along with ….. What if I had had a dog named Spike?


    I am having my own second thoughts on whether or not I am posting correctly here…..appreciate any feedback….
