Wandering through the Reader this evening I found a post regarding National Poetry Writing Month. I’ve never heard of it before, but apparently it’s similar to NaNoWriMo in that one month of the year writers undertake a challenge. In this case, to write a poem a day every day of April.
I might give it a go. http://www.napowrimo.net/ has a daily prompt to help if you’re not feeling inspired. Today it was to go to Bibliomancy Oracle, a Tumblr blog, and see what came up.This was mine:
You do not move mountains with money
you move mountains with faith.
from “Werner Herzog” by Mike Krutel
I got nothing. Sorry, not even a dreary squiggle. I’m going to have to dig something else out of my brain.
Okay, this happened. It’s terrible.
Tie a kite to your mum’s car;
Tell the boss you’re looking for a computer file,
In the stationary cupboard;
Tell the kids to go buy some chickens teeth for tea;
It’s April Fool’s Day
