Recapturing Passion

April Poem-A-Day

Day 4. For today’s prompt, write a catch-up poem.

While I am playing catch-up, I didn’t write about that. Sometimes catching up on life is more complicated. But before I share my poem, I’d like to mention that I am an honorable mention in the November PAD Chapbook Challenge. It really is an honor!!

2022 April PAD Challenge

National Poetry Month kicks off today and that means it’s time for the Writer’s Digest 2022 April PAD Challenge. (PAD is short for Poem-A-Day.) Robert Brewer posts a daily prompt and poets poem. It’s that simple. Or that difficult. Depending on the day and the prompt.

Here we go.

Day 1. “For today’s prompt, pick a word that begins with F, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.”

I wrote a type of Fibonacci but the spacing isn’t accurate on this graphic.

NOVEMBER PAD

In four days, the 2021 November Poem-A-Day Challenge will begin. If you enjoy writing poetry or if you want to kickstart your budding poetry interests, I encourage you to join thousands of poets around the world in this unique challenge. Robert Lee Brewer posts a writing prompt each morning and you as the poet, write your poem then post it on the PAD forum. All the rules and guidelines are found at this link.

Haunt

My poetic friends over at Poetic Bloomings have introduced a new form–the Waltmarie. (Sounds like a dance, doesn’t it?) The form was created by Candace Kubinec (Rhymes with Bug).

Marie describes the form on her exquisite blog Pictured Words

“The Waltmarie is a 10-line form of any subject. The even-numbered lines are 2 syllables, and must form their own poem when read separately. The odd-numbered lines are longer, with no syllable count restrictions. That’s it! This new form is loads of fun, but is also quite challenging.”

In addition: “Robert Lee Brewer, poetry editor of the Writer’s Digest, highlighted Candace’s new form for his Poetic Form Friday feature on February 12: Waltmarie: Poetic Forms – Writer’s Digest.”

Here’s my attempt:
