Day 12 of the NaPoWriMo Challenge… A Fireplace Called Passion

Today’s challenge prompt took me a while to attempt. The prompt asks us to create a Replacement poem.

” Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.”

I’d say this has been the prompt to stump me because of having to use random sentences. However, it’s not called a challenge for nothing. 😀

The common noun I chose was fireplace and I replaced it with passion.

A Fireplace Called Passion

Passion is

an architectural structure

designed to contain a fire.

Prefabricated passion can be fueled

by wood


natural gas.

Over time the design of passion

has changed from one of necessity

to one of

visual interest.

Passion is used for warmth

on cold days and nights.

As well as providing heat,

the passion of the Victorian era

was thought to add

a cozy


to homes.

This is still true today.

  2. This is a wonderful piece that shows depth and great care in writing it. The replacement of fireplace with passion works perfectly, and if I hadn’t known the story behind you creating this, I wouldn’t have guessed the replacement even existed. You blended it all so seamlessly, and I felt my mind expanding with each line that illustrated the relationship between the two. You are so talented in such diverse styles! It’s always a joy reading your poetry!!!
