Day 2 of 30 in our 2018 NaNoWriMo & November Poem-A-Day (NovPAD challenges.

MY NovPAD PAD prompt is inspired by the Day of the Dead. Perhaps I should have used it yesterday – but after October’s dark themes, I wanted something optimistic and affirming. But now it is Day 2 and I am offering “when the dead was the living”.
 I might draw some inspiration from Disney’s Coco – and it’s message of memory.
Checked  Robert Lee Brewers 2018 NovPAD Challenge, NovPAD Day 2’s prompt is to  write a darkest hour poem. (Brewer is on Georgia-time.)
Not sure yet who else is offering a PAD challenge this year – I will add them as I find them.
As for NaNoWriMo – I got side-tracked from writing, but life happens and I have to take care of life. But it was only Day 2; there are still 28 days left.

My NovPAD prompt yesterday was “the novel you wrote”.  Here’s a draft of my poem from that prompt. (I shared the first stanza at Thursday’s Salem Poetry Project)
