Day 9 of 30 in our 2018 NaNoWriMo & November Poem-A-Day (NovPAD) challenges.

Today is Go to an Art Museum Day. As you may know, my alter ego is as Pacific NW artist CCWillow so I split my time up as needed between poetry and art. I tend to go on Tuesday’s; is a day I spend primarily as CC “doing research”; the Hallie Ford Art Museum (attached to Willamette University)  has free admission that day so I head there in the afternoon. And I tend to really take my time; most exhibits are there for several weeks so I don’t rush through an exhibit. I ponder most pieces, even those I don’t like, weighing both the art piece and the decisions the artist made. Today’s prompt? “what the artist did”

Over at Brewer’s  2018 PAD Challenge, Day 9’s prompt is to ‘Burn (blank)’

For Potion’sPoem-A-Day Challenge,  Day 9’s prompt is truths I keep to myself

For NaNoWriMo, today’s prompt is “Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book or for another book.  Give it. Give it all. Give it now.”

So …how’s November treating you? Got any scribings you want to share with me?

My share today is one of Tuesday’s poem’s; this one was inspired by the Poetry Potion prompt My skin is thinning, my skin is thinning. Am I vanishing?” …
