April Love Prompt: Current Obsession

This year I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by combining  NaPoWriMo’s daily poetry challenge with Susannah Conway’s April Love daily photo prompts on Instagram. Each day of April, you will observe the same photo in my Instagram feed on the righthand sidebar that you see in my blog post along with an instapoem. We shall find out at the end of the month whether this was a brilliant career move, sheer laziness or a fool’s errand. 

Until then, care to join me in these creative waters where even fools fear to tread? The water’s fine.

A Walk in the Dark

I take no
comfort
in puny pen
lights, clueless
car beams or
quavering
street lamps
too timid to
show
the way.

Instead
I use
my toes to
trace cracks,
fingers to
follow walls
until I see
that thin slit
of hopeful
horizon.

April Love Photo Prompt: My morning view

It’s the first day of April, and faithful blog readers know what that means. Round 3 of NaPoWriMo’s daily poetry challenge almost didn’t happen this year, despite the purported charms of a third try. Don’t know about you, but I’m finding creative endeavors a bit overwhelming these days, so I’ve decided to combine a celebration of National Poetry Month with Susannah Conway’s April Love daily photo prompts on Instagram. Starting today, you will observe the same photo in my Instagram feed on the righthand sidebar that you see in my blog post along with an instapoem. We shall find out at the end of the month whether this was a brilliant career move, sheer laziness or a fool’s errand. 

Until then, care to join me in these creative waters where even fools fear to tread? The water’s fine.
