Today, I want to note that it is International Day of Non-Violence. As an advocate of peace, I just can’t let a day like this go unremarked on.

Today, besides using the daily prompt, I will be writing some poems about non-violence.

Now onto the fun halloweeny prompt … Oct 2nd’s prompt is “the monster in the cabinet”.

If you appreciate what I do, please consider being one of my  Patrons on  Patreon.

Looking for patrons so I will have the funds to continue offering this blog – Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid.

For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. By supporting a creator with a few bucks per month, your favorite creators can make a living doing what they do best (for me – that’s poetry) because of you! And you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts.
