Death by poetry

When I read your words
I choked
on their meaning

Off prompt micropoetry for day 17 of #NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt made me realise I do not come from a line of storytellers. The prompt was to write a poem re-telling a family anecdote that has stuck with you over time. I could make one up, but I don’t want to do that. So, let’s focus on the storytelling of some fellow participants instead:

Bruce Niedt writes about Darth Vader wanting to make the empire great again.

Brian Ens wrote an ode to libraries – he describes a feeling many of us will recognise.

Flutterby wrote a beautiful piece a boy playing soldier. (Can someone please name the form for me?)

        It’s one of my favourite verse forms -it’s really tricky to write but so satisfying when it works.

        I manage to get stuff done when he’s at school. And I try to do the reading when he’s playing outside or in bed. But I know he knows it’s NaPoWriMo 🙂
