Requiem for OctPoWriMo 2014

(excerpt from the ballad of reading goal)

A challenge:
Wishful painting
Do you think you can?

Practice makes unheard of
Substitute someone’s words, not mine

Today’s prescription:
The ballad of free reign
Hurry will leave no trace

TALB, a challenge:
Lay your words on me
Do you think you can?
No brainer

Today’s prescription:
We worship our mistress today
as if your life depended on it, human being

A challenge, Love Trojan Horse:
Take a load off Annie
Do you think you can?
That’s the question

Not feeling good
Get me out of here
It’s allright ma
You can’t keep a bad drink down

Frustration poems:
He had more patience than she did
Late no Game
Substitute someone’s words, not mine
Practice makes unheard of

Found poetry for the last day of #OctPoWrimo: I used the titles of all the poems I created this month to make my poem for day 31. Of course it ended up being a weird poem, but I love that I could fit everything in it. Sometimes it’s more important to have fun than to be brilliant 😉

I want to thank everybody at for providing fantastic prompts, and for creating a stimulating and safe environment for people to create and share.

At the risk of sounding like an Oscar winner, I also want to thank all the writers who participated. You all did a fabulous job in creating such diverse, beautiful, interesting, deep, funny and scary poems. I don’t think I’ve ever read this much poetry in my life, and I loved the quality that was displayed.

More Oscar shout-outs, to the people who read my poems and commented on them. I’m happily stunned by all the nice words that have been said, it’s been amazing. Thank you!

And for everybody who read without commenting: thank you too. My statiscs know you were there, and being read is what matters. A poem without readers is an orphan.

I will not spend the night reading and commenting tonight, by boyfriend is looking forward to talking to me again. I’m not joining NaNoWriMo, so I’ll have plenty of time to catch up in November. In the meanwhile, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. I’d love to meet you there!
