Window Stay      

 

lost

one small pin

in a strong gust of wind

Our final GloNaPoWriMo 2019 day.  You will see there are two versions of the poem here. I prefer the first due to syntax.  I messed for ages with the visual and not till later did I realise I’d missed two words. Whether I can reverse that picture above I’m not sure. I just go until I get it right. Cheers to all who have taken part. See you next year. But will continue to catch up on our April writings. ‘Til later.

Any Time of Day – GloPoWriMo 2017 – Day Four – Enigma

napo2017button1

Any Time of Day

I am slippery

I am smooth

And I am top

.

I am made of paper

I have songs to sing

I am in a folio

Sometimes,

I am three in the wind

 .

I am curved in places

I am a modern innovation

I’m always on the bottom

.

I am made of paper

I have stories to tell

I am a favourite of lovers

Any time of day

Some would do without me

Some would not

 .

Sometimes I cover the ground

I am old as trees

Sometimes you see through me

Or sometimes, the broad view

Through the trees

And I will come to mind

Sometimes I am rain

.

I am made of paper

I have songs to sing

Sometimes, I am three in the wind

Sometimes, I am rain

Today I’d like you to take some inspiration from Elgar and write a poem with a secret – in other words, a poem with a word or idea or line that it isn’t expressing directly. The poem should function as a sort of riddle, but not necessarily a riddle of the “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” variety. You could choose a word, for example, “yellow,” and make everything in the poem something yellow, but never actually allude to their color. Or perhaps you could closely describe a famous physical location or person without ever mentioning what or who it actually is.
