I participated in a NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) two years ago and I enjoyed it. I found it challenging but rewarding to brush up on my poetry writing.
I missed it last year and I’m starting two days late but I am in this time around!
For April 1st, the challenge was to write a Lune:
“This is a sort of English-language haiku. While the haiku is a three-line poem with a 5-7-5 syllable count, the lune is a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count. There’s also a variant based on word-count, instead of syllable count, where the poem still has three lines, but the first line has five words, the second line has three words, and the third line has five words again. Either kind will do, and you can write a one-lune poem, or write a poem consisting of multiple stanzas of lunes.”
Here is my Day One Poem-
A new day brings hope.
There is life
In every new breath.
