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

Wow, a great first poem Jackie, complete with rhymes, you have done well. I look forward to the next 29…..good luck. Wish I could write a decent poem, I’ll have to learn from you I think.
Thank you Michael. Hey, you do write poetry and prose! I’ve read it! So I know….and quite well too. lol
You are setting yourself a high standard, so good luck..
Good for you, Jackie! I’m proud of you. I look forward to all of your creations.
Thank you Amy, it’s scary doing something like this, but I can do it. I think 😉
Yes, you can!
New adventures await! Enjoy the poetic swim!
The best of luck to you! I had a royal blast doing NaNoWriMo a couple of years ago, but I don’t have the guts to do poetry.
thank you, I have done NaNoWriMo for the last two years, so I thought I’d try something different for me.
Ohhhh! Such a great start. Poetry is not my forte haha, unless I do it unintentionally. Whenever this happens, I’m totally happy (even though it’s the most cliche type of poetry ever…)
Wish you lots of luck as well! I’m seeing so many dedication thingies for this month. I wish I could join haha, but I’ll stop by whenever I can. 🙂 *hugs and waves*
Hi TJ! *waves* Stop by again! I know you are one busy lady, so you do your stuff because it’s awesome! Hugs!
Good luck – I also am embarking on this great adventure.
A great poem to start with 🙂
Thank you! I will have to read yours. And good luck also 🙂
