Pause [NaPoWriMo Day 3]

Sometimes it becomes a little too much
The chaos and clutter of life
And when reality come knocking on the door
I close my eyes and say
Not today.

Gray [Micropoetry]

If everything was white and black
It would be easy to draw a line
Right down the middle

But we all live in a world of gray
Some lighter than the others
Gray all the same

NaPoWriMo Day 25: Chasing Butterflies

Prompt: Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that begins with a line from a another poem (not necessarily the first one), but then goes elsewhere with it. This will work best if you just start with a line of poetry you remember, but without looking up the whole original poem. (Or, find a poem that you haven’t read before and then use a line that interests you).


Fluttering and dancing in the breeze,

Enticingly, glittering in the sun,

Flapping their vivid, beautiful wings,

Creating a world, colorful and bright.

All my sorrow fades away,

As I run around, chasing butterflies.

Strange, how my joy comes,

From what I inadvertently destroy.

Maybe, just maybe,

It’s not a bad world, after all.


I took the first line of my poem from Daffodilsby William Wordsworth.

NaPoWriMo Day 20: Kennings on my dog

Prompt: Today’s prompt encourages us to write a kennings poem. A Kenning is a two word phrase describing an object often using a metaphor. A Kennings poem is a riddle made up of several lines of kennings to describe something or someone. For example, you might call a cat a mouse-stalker, quiet-walker, bird-warner, purr-former, etc.

I wrote my Kennings on my dachshund – Trusty. I have previously written a post dedicated to My Squishy.

I will also attach a photo for your reference because how can I not take this opportunity to show everyone what a handsome young boy he is? 😀
