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
“Alone” in the airport
On my way home
Surrounded by the storm
And then it happens
We break through the storm
The sun dances on the clouds below
And the image is emblazoned on my mind
