NaPoWriMo Day 1!

Today I’m  continuing the pattern I set up earlier, where I follow this rhyme scheme: ABACCBCA. I’m using near or slant rhyme in many lines. Go to this link to read the entire prompt and the first two stanzas: Getting Ready For April and National Poetry Month.


On the side of the path a pony skull
Picked clean as a bleached sheet
Sinks into the grass, eyes dull.
On the hill they prance and bleat,
Unaware they are alive only to be killed–
Viand de cheval, a delicacy in this ville.
For dinner we ate small pieces of duck’s meat,
but didn’t imagine it swimming, alive, whole.

    so you are back
    good to see
    you are on track
    where will this journey take you?
    possibly a trek to katmandu…
    i will be watching from the sidelines sipping earl grey tea
    please remember to pack the emu
    keep opening the door, if only a crack.

    The exercise you have chosen is quite a challenge. Your writings are impressive and intriguing. It is fun being along for the ride. Those horses are pretty.
