Weekend Wrap-up: April 17

Wow. Sixteen poems so far. Has it been difficult? Yes and no. Sometimes the prompts from NaPoWriMo seem a bit too specific, but they are just suggestions and I have taken some liberties with them. A few of them I knocked out fairly quick, most took a bit of brainwork.

Here are the first 2 weeks. If you have a moment you can read them on Medium or on my Poem Page: National Poetry Writing Month

NaPoWriMo : Day 7 – Poem with strict syllables πŸ˜€

NaPoWriMo : Day 5 – Imitation πŸ€”
NaPoWriMo : Day 4 – Odd transitional spaces (think Escher)  πŸ€”
NaPoWriMo : Day 3 – Use of random words to inspire πŸ€”
