You see that banner up there? Yeah the nice red one that says NaPoWriMo 2014? That’s the one! It’s National Poetry Writing Month.
Guess what? I am doing something absolutely crazy for me and joining in this month! Yeah, the woman who keeps saying I don’t do poetry.
I am doing a whole month of poetry! Me! Ahhhhh!!!!
I think I have lost my mind people. So I’m hoping you will take pity on me and be gentle when you read my stuff this month. Please?
So as the banner says, I’m diving in, just hope the pool is not empty and I crack my head open on the bottom.
Here is my first effort this month. Just 29 more to go. Ha-ha!
NO APRIL FOOL’S JOKE
Stepping out from behind my wall,
My stories of fiction and such will have to wait
To do poetry all month-long is now my fate
I don’t know if I’m crazy or what,
But I’m going for it and I hope I won’t be late
It will look pretty bad if I fall on my face
Not to mention hurt my pride as well
I will have to rely on peoples good grace
I have a friend who promises to help
As I go on all month-long
He is well versed in prose and such
And a brave soul as well
So here I go my readers, my friends
My first real effort this month
And know this is no April’s fool joke
As I put myself out there for all to poke
