november poem-a-day, day 1
As you can see by looking at my blog (my most recent post before this is October 18), I have been missing for two weeks. It seems the only time I blog these days is if I am part of some wild and crazy challenge. And so here I am to announce that I am attempting another wild and crazy challenge.
I am traveling to Oregon this month (leaving on Thursday), so it’s going to be extra wild and crazy. Apparently, it’s what motivates me. Who am I to argue with the muse? The muse is The Boss.
This one is the Poetic Asides Poem-A-Day (PAD) Challenge. Every day in November write a poem. During December, assemble them into a chapbook. Wild and crazy, yes? Yes!
This fall I have succumbed many times to naming poems by date or occasion (“The last weekend of September” or “Wednesday night poetry reading”); I don’t know if those titles will stick, but they are holding their places. To make things easier for November, unless a title is screaming at me to be heard, I am going to name my poems by the date they are written: November 1, November 2, etc.
The prompt for today is to write a “closing the door” or “turning the page” poem. Here goes!
