So, I was already doing the Poem-a-Day challenge, and then I found out today about NaPoWriMo, which is also great … and which is also this month. And I was out of town all last week. I eked out some rather lame PAD efforts from various living rooms and basements and Red Roof Inn bathrooms (free WiFi, kids sleeping, you get the picture) on the road. As a good friend just put it, I have a lot of pos to wri this mo. Indeed, I do.
Below is my effort for Day 9 of NaPoWriMo, based on the prompt to write a persona poem. I have a thing for solitary bees lately. Seriously, they’re cool. Thank one today (or tomorrow — let them sleep). I did days 8, 7, and 6 as well, and will post those *soon.* Then I’ll continue to catch up on the rest of the old prompts and keep up with the new ones. Whew!
If I find your flowers
I will fill these baskets on my legs
Sun is high day is long
I am all that I am
