Day Ten – one third of the way there! Good for you, you little scoundral!

And if you have fallen along the way, just jump back in where we are at! There’s no trophy you are giving up and no referees to stop you from getting back in the game. The only judge you need to please with Poem-A-Day challenges is you.

It is also another Monday. But you have your habits working for you this time around …

Writing is an endurance test. So is publishing. Sunday I was lost Sunday in formating web pages – for some reason my “page-jumps” will not stick – except on two (rarely used) pages. And my indent’s within poems have also decided to play truant.  It’s the SLIDing, I suspect – there’s times I have just needed to walk away and stay away. So I’ve been excavating in the HTML. I have manaaged to tighten up the line spacing ‘tho. So I’m just going to consider it a win.

Robert Lee Brewer’s AprPAD challenge prompt is travel.

NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo’s featured participant today is Whimsygizmo’s Blog, their featured poet is former U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey.

And NapoWriMO’s prompt is to write a portrait of someone important to you.

As for my personal Poem A Day Challenge , today’s PAD is … a ballerina.

One of today’s compositions …

watching scorpians

we each have a double-sized bed
dragons who disguise themselves as clouds.
the pixy’s words have vanished;
when we lay down to sleep, i will tie my wrists nice and snug
because if you stay still, you can’t lose your way.
if you stay still, you can’t find your way either –
momento mori – emptiness & waiting.
i took a handful of pungent moss, whispered in its collective ear
i have my couch four miles south
