Note: NaPoWriMo Poetry Challenge officially ended April 30th but I was ill for almost 2 weeks and was not feeling creative. I saved the prompts and will be posting my poems simply because I like to finish what I start.
(If you still read them, I’m most appreciative!)
The prompt: “…write a poem that tells a story. But here’s the twist – the story should be told backwards. The first line should say what happened last, and work its way through the past until you get to the beginning.”
I laid my head to rest on my pillow and slept.
It was such a rough day.
Through my head myriad emotions crept.
I tried to keep stress at bay.
I had a million things I needed to do.
I was running out of time.
The “Things to do” list; I couldn’t get through.
My poetry book with not one new rhyme.
My best intentions gathered like a clan
and the sense of purpose made me heady.
A hot cup of coffee and I laid out my plan,
I woke to conquer the day fresh and ready!
