NaPoWriMo 2015

Day 15: Today, I challenge you to write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self (and in this case for me again: visual poetry).

April was NaPoWriMo (National—which includes International—Writing Poetry Month), however the prompts remain in place. The prompt posts are informative and revealing. Resources and samplings are often linked in the post. And the prompts which can be explored any time. . . . are sure to ripple your thought process about poetry as well as widen your wow Here: NaPoWriMO.

In April at a rough count in a couple of places I wrote 83 haiku, in addition to the NaPoWriMo prompts I was able to get to in that month. Although I am not posting all of these haiku or other things I’ve been doing recently I am still working daily. At some point I believe i will get back to posting more regularly. Thank you to all of you who continue to view my work here. I appreciate that you continue to come even when I am posting less.

For those interested in the state of the Frameless Sky Journal, it is nearing completion and will most likely be available sometime in the next few weeks. I’ve seen sneak states of it and I am impressed with the writing, music and the way it is being pulled together via the editor Christine L. Villa. I hope you enjoy all of it along with the photographs I contributed for this issue.

Day 14: Today, I challenge you to write a poem that takes the form of a dialogue. (or in this case for me: and visual poetry).

April is was NaPoWriMo (National—which includes International—Writing Poetry Month), however the prompts remain in place. The prompt posts are informative and revealing. Resources and samplings are often linked in the post. And the prompts which can be explored any time. . . . are sure to ripple your thought process about poetry as well as widen your wow Here: NaPoWriMO.

This has been an evolving project. From a day or two to a week or two (although I was already behind by two weeks to begin with. . . .)

It was to have been you reading and then clicking on a recording play button, here in the blog, however I could not get that to work. Eventually that led to the above iMovie and YouTube.

. . . .and incase all of that doesn’t work here is the full (short) poem in written form:

An Experiment in Conversation

pce written 1 sml 6x

1 – Rick reading (which would have been a recording):
“oh I won’t. I’ll just wing it.”

pce written 2 sml 6x

2 – Rick reading (which would have been a recording):
“just remember. I don’t know anything or much about this poetry stuff. I’m just trying to be me. so this will just have to be an experiment. entering you. through your eyes. and through your ears. into your skull. in my own words.”

pce written 3 sml 6x

3 – Rick reading: (which would have been a recording):
“yes. well. really. what do you think they will make of this tomorrow? or in fifty to a hundred years from now? imagine.”

pce written 4 sml 6x

4 – Rick reading: (which would have been a recording):
“oh. I have my doubts. nothing new under the sun has always been a lot close than I have reason to imagine. remember doing haiga before you knew haiga existed? haibun before you knew haibun existed? etegami before you knew etegami existed? . . . . well. this may be a lot like that. and then what?”

pce written 5 sml 6x

5 – Rick reading: (which would have been a recording):
“yes laughing perhaps. and then some. because it’s all new to me all of the time. each day I wake. and each day I’m off planet. and beyond the great beyond. yes?”

pce written 6 sml 6x

Day 12: From Dr. Cynthia A. Cochran of Illinois College:
Describe in great detail your favorite room, place, meal, day, or person. You can do this in paragraph form.

Now cut unnecessary words like articles and determiners (a, the, that) and anything that isn’t really necessary for content; leave mainly nouns, verbs, a few adjectives.
Cut the lines where you see fit and, VOILA! A poem!

My Response:

waking to rain. or maybe sunlight. opening eyes on the moment around me. a silhouette. light leaking into the room around the window blinds. the drip of a faucet. bird chatter. the sound of leaves dripping. a slight to mighty water falling gusher from the gutters along the roof. a car door slams. the engine starts. the road whining softly away from the neighbor’s carport. a dog barks. i kick off the covers. push the pillows aside. anticipating.

Into Another Now

waking to rain. maybe sunlight. 
opening eyes on moment. 
silhouette. light leaking.
darkened room. window blinds.
faucet dripping. bird chatter. 
leaves dripping. slight to mighty. 
water falling gusher. from gutters. 
along roof. car door slams. 
engine starts. road whining.
softly away. from neighbor’s.
carport. motorcycle rumbles.
dog barks. I kick off covers. 
push pillows aside. anticipation.

Day 11: compose a poem in Sapphics. These are quatrains whose first three lines have eleven syllables, and the fourth, just five. There is also a very strict meter that alternates trochees (a two-syllable foot, with the first syllable stressed, and the second unstressed) and dactyls (a three-syllable foot, with the first syllable stressed and the remainder unstressed). The first three lines consist of two trochees, a dactyl, and two more trochees. The fourth line is a dactyl, followed by a trochee.

Day 11: (or Haiku Alternative or. of course. Visual Poetry)

Stationary Time Travel

against 
all turnings 
of the clock.

the darkness 
spreading.

still one star
at a time.

between 
the houses.

where I walk.

and linger.

yet one step.

out of rhyme.
