“Don’t be sharp or flat, just be natural” – Willie Stargell
your message in my yearbook
…such a clever line

In the spirit of NaNoWriMo, I’ve challenged myself to write one poem a day this November.
I’m using a variety of prompts for that:
- Poetic Asides (where Robert Brewer posts one a day through November with the invite to enter your best collection in his chapbook challenge).
- Adele Kenny’s blog
- Poets and Writers prompts
- Poets Online Archive … and others
With permission from art-makers like David Bayles and Ted Orland (“The function of the overwhelming majority of your artwork is simply to teach you how to make the small fraction of your artwork that soars,”) I will proceed with realism.
I’ve decided to share some of my pieces here. The poem above is my poem for November 2nd, inspired by Robert Brewer’s prompt for November 2nd: “For today’s prompt, use an epigraph to kickstart your poem.“
