Written for NaPoWriMo, Day 4: http://www.napowrimo.net/
care for our Mother
for to her we shall return
when our spirit’s freed
she tends to our needs
but often we ignore her
walk in mindfulness
listen to her whisperings
embrace her beauty
Here’s the prompt the NaPoWriMo gave, but my word inspired a bit of haiku to follow:
Because April is National Poetry Month, there are a lot of poetry-related things going on besides NaPoWriMo. One I thought people might be interested in is InterNaPwoWriMo, or International Pwoemrd Writing Month, a project sponsored by visual poet Geof Huth. What’s a pwoermd, you ask? It’s a one-word poem! Sometimes they are made by shoving two words together to form an interesting new word, but there are a lot of ways of going about it.
Today, if you’re looking for a challenge, why not try your hand at a pwoemrd? They might look easy, but it’s actually pretty hard to come up with an interesting one – something that works visually and also makes some kind of sense.
