RLB today suggest using “(blank) Day” as the title of today’s NovPAD poem. This may end up being an elegy to my Grizzly (T-Day was always his holiday … and now Son takes up the mantle.)

Poetry Potion has a prompt of “Angels & vices” – I first read that as Angels and voices” … Might become my poem.

Mia’s Prompt for Day 22 is “distorted sounds”.

All really great prompts …

NaNoWiMo
