31 Poems in 31 Days

by Stephanie Nickel, CES Ghostwriter/Editor/Coach

It’s October. Woohoo! That means it’s OctPoWriMo (October Poetry Writing Month). I participate each year and write 31 poems in 31 days.

Each day Morgan Dragonwillow adds a prompt that participants can use as a springboard. But it isn’t necessary; the important thing is to write any type of poem on any topic.

Not all participants are published poets, but we do enjoy expressing ourselves with only a handful of words.

If you would like to check it out, please do. If you would like to challenge yourself to write a poem a day, go for it!

Here is my poem from October 1:

Break Through the Clouds

Darkness

Thunder

Lightning

“Alone” in the airport

Waiting

Wondering

Hoping

On my way home

Boarding

Rising

Enveloped

Surrounded by the storm

Bleak

Black

Loud

And then it happens

Wondrous

Beautiful

Awesome

We break through the storm

Sunlight

Radiance

Brilliance

The sun dances on the clouds below

Joyfully

Gloriously

Amazingly

And the image is emblazoned on my mind

FOREVER
