National Poetry Writing Month started in 2003 inspired by NaNoWriMo. I’ve done both, won NaNoWriMo once though I don’t participate much anymore. I do participate in both NaPoWriMo every April and OctPoWriMo (October Poetry Writing Month) every year too. I am a poet at heart and have been writing poetry since I was seventeen. Not always good poetry, but still, poetry.
So, we’re a week into NaPoWriMo 2018 and here are my first six poems. Because I’m a day behind and I’m tired and it’s already past midnight at time of writing. I just don’t think I have a second poem in me today. The links all go to my Medium blog that I use now and then, and sometimes reblog posts from here.
Week One Poems
There is a mix there, and day three is at the very limits of what one might call a poem. But read, clap (on the side), share and write your own poetry. It’s not too late to join in.
