Get into the Junk Drawer Song
Get into the Junk Drawer Song
Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt called “Junk Drawer Song” is an interesting juxtaposition of thoughts on a song and the stuff in the junk drawer. The April PAD Challenge is a “Get (blank)” title poem. Over at the A to Z Challenge they linked to a bunch of random generators in hopes to inspire. My Janus word for today is incorporate (adjective) 1) having a body, having been incorporated; 2) having no…

I’m worried about her
I’m worried about her the radio silence built from not enough time and endless weekends I’m worried about her when the post is slower, the letters shorter. the cards, smaller. I’m worried about her and the locked doors the tears and the sobs I’m worried about her how she won’t listen to her favourite song I’m worried about her; endlessly worried about her

What the Inanimate Need to Do
What the Inanimate Need to Do
The NaPoWriMo prompt for today is to write an unusual character’s to-do list. The PAD challenge is to write a persona poem for an inanimate object. Over at A to Z the word is “hustle.” I’m feeling that. My Janus phrase for today is hold up which can mean to support or aid, or to hinder or impede. Such a busy day I’ll need to make a lista to-do listto keep everything straightto keep me on…

After Fleeting Moments Fly
After Fleeting Moments Fly
photograph by Maria L. Berg 2017 Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is a bit odd (but timely since I found out last night that a friend died). We are to write a monologue poem delivered by someone who is dead. Poem-a-Day prompt is a metaphor poem. A to Z Challenge is Game. My Janus word is garnish: With food, the verb means “to add to”; with wages, it means “to take from”. Because my friend and I got…

Original ideas through playing with opposites
Original ideas through playing with opposites
Today at the dVerse Poets Pub, the Poetics prompt is to write an opposite poem. Lisa offered up an amazing video called The Opposites Game from TED Ed that I highly recommend watching. I thought it would be fun to start with one of my own old poems and create its “opposite.” I started with a NaPoWriMo poem from last year called A future voice in the dark. Another future voice in the dark You…

Fun with Collective Nouns
Fun with Collective Nouns
The NaPoWriMo prompt today is to choose a short line from a beloved book as the title of the poem, then once the poem is written, completely change the title. At first I had trouble deciding which book to draw from, but then my eyes rested on my beautiful copy of A Compendium of Collective Nouns from Woop Studios. The A to Z Challenge is to write a sentence without the letter E. My Janus word is…

lonely
it is a walk in a forest where birds do not sing where their feathers do not fall to the floor, among the leave mold and moss
it is to be on a beach where waves do not greet you where the sea seems silent still, sand does not pile up where the shells are white and weathered
it is to be on a street bare and cold, concrete cracked where there is no hum where there is no light where there are no faces to smile upon you
it is to be sat at dawn, with no sleep and no peace where the world is far away where the music is muffled and where there are no shoes beside mine in the hallway we shared

Heightened Senses
by Maria L. Berg 2021 The prompt for NaPoWriMo is a form prompt called “The Shapes a Bright Container Can Contain.” We are to emulate a poems shape/line lengths and use the same first letter of each line. Over at the A to Z challenge there is a dice game of challenges and rewards. I’m enjoying their theme this year. I rolled two sixes, so my challenge is to visit 6 new blogs, and my reward it…

here’s what i remember
I remember a feather light touch the gooseflesh it inspired along my arms a kiss, brushed along a cheek painting it crimson, matching her blush our hands, cold but clammy held, beneath streetlights tucked into her pocket, warm the feeling of one last drink sitting in my stomach, where butterflies roam

Release
Who'd have thunk it that behind a lonesome tear lurk the floodgates, desperately trying to resist the urge, the swell, the suffocation of an ageless soul trying to break free and dive headfirst into the waterfall ─
the water is key.
We are water like the drops making up the entire sea ─
we are the sea.
We are also starborne and scattered, interstellar energy driftwood that landed on these shores and absorbed them into symbiosis. What happens
when a symbiont becomes too much to bear, when it sucks away the wellbeing of its host? It becomes a parasite, leeching off the mother milk like demon imps off a witch's tit.
The planet's grown weary, its night terrors surge and those tear ducts are swelling, itching to give in to the urge
to set free the floodgates,
to wail and howl until its release is met. ©️ Anna S., 2021
