Pulled Pork Burger

Day twenty six of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem that describes something using all the five senses. I look up from my phone, I hear a gentle thud, It’s a sight for sore eyes. The contents of the plate. Handful of chips, coleslaw, A beautiful burger. It had my attention, All noises […]

The point of no return

Day twenty five of NaPoWriMo. Today’s challenge is to write a poem that’s a warning message about yourself. The warning is strikingly similar to the example that was provided. When I’m eating with friends, Food disappears too soon, One day a plate of fries, Was barely even touched, A friend who had gone out, For […]

The brave one

Day twenty four of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write an elegy while giving hope. I didn’t know of her while she was alive, The day she was shot, changed a lot of things. I started reading about her that night, Her opponents showed how petty they were. People kept repeating how kind she was, […]

That didn’t sound right

Day twenty three of NaPoWriMo. Today’s challenge is to write a poem based in sounds. There are times when no one’s talking, The furious typing on keybords, The humming fan and the mouseclick. Are the sounds I hear while working. The hushed up whispering of colleagues, The sporadic ringing of phones, Music from a removed […]

The Stars in Space

Day twenty two of NaPoWriMo. Today’s challenge is to pick an impossible sentence, and make it happen in a poem. Countless stars that you see in the night sky, At a distance we cannot comprehend, They’re distant specks of twinkling light for us. A stark contrast to burning rage they hold, Many of them are […]

Loving Yourself

Day twenty one of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is based on the Narcissus story. You tend to realize, There is a problem, When someone starts to, Talk about themselves, As a third person. They love to hear their name, Their face put on billboards. More than their reflection, They love the cameras now. Loving yourself won’t […]

Rebels of all sizes

Day twenty of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a rebellious poem. Rebels come in all Sizes, They turn up in unexpected Places, Determination on their faces, The dog that doesn’t care about the ball, The kid that’s not impressed by a magic trick. Ones that stand up for friends or even strangers. To find […]


Day nineteen of NaPoWriMo. Today’s challenge is to write a paragraph and create a poem out of it through removing or adding words to it. I was probably eight or nine, When my Dad brought home this great dane. She was the first one I got to see grow up. All the way from a […]

The Fallen Men

Day eighteen of NaPoWriMo. Today’s challenge is to take an unfamiliar poem and to start writing lines from the bottom up while reading the original poem upwards one line at a time. This has all the makings of a disaster. This is based on a poem I found online. The theme roughly matches. Silly that […]

Nailed to the Cross

Day seventeen of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to tell an anecdote in the form of a poem. I heard this one when I was in school. I also enjoyed telling this to my friends. Next to my school, was an old church, It was abandoned years ago. A graveyard dotted with tombstones, Was under a […]
