Day twenty-seven – The countdown has gotten real! Only 4 days to go.

Today is officially “Poem In Your Pocket Day”. Hope Screen Door poem meme squareyou got a poem … I have printed out the meme shown and am carrying it as a scroll today. If you are looking for other ways to celebrate other than having a poem in your pocket, see my list of suggestions in yesterday’s blog.

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

Robert Lee Brewer’s AprPAD 2017 prompt for today is to use at least 3 of the following 6 words in your poem (using a word or two in your title is fine); for extra credit, try using all 6:

  • pest
  • crack
  • ramble
  • hiccup
  • wince
  • festoon

NaPoWriMo‘s featured participant today is A Thing For Words. Today’s featured poet is the poet Sharon Olds, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for her collection Stag’s Leap.

Many poems explore the sight or sound or feel of things, and Proust famously wrote about the memories evoked by smell, but today NaPoWriMo invites you to write a poem that explores your sense of taste! This could be a poem about food, or wine, or even the oddly metallic sensation of a snowflake on your tongue.

Poets&Writers 30 Day Challenge  follows the same track about writing with a focus on senses, except their tak on it is to write a poem to or about a person close to you using any of the senses except sight.

The Poetry School’s NaPoWriMo group has today’s prompt as The Elements. Your poem today should contain one or more of the elements, classical or scientific. This excellent dynamic periodic table will be very useful. The title of your poem should be your chosen element(s). Try to steer clear of gold and ‘the element of surprise’ because they’ve both been done to death, and go for one of the more interesting ones. Research is your friend.


 

Today, I am in artist mode hyperdrive. I start setting up my art showings for Friday’s Art Walk & May’s display this morning. So I am assembling pendants & printing cards like crazy! 

I did get my “It’s A Trap” Storm Tooper head finished about an hour ago, I turn that in first thing this morning.

It is 1:38, and I have alot of product to print out & assemble …

Happy poeming, my friends!
