NaPoWriMo 2016

April 2016 is now over and so is the ’30 poems in 30 days’ challenge.

The Facebook page where I posted them originally:

I must admit I am still learning why way through all the wonderful WordPress options, but I am hoping to be able to share them here too.

I wrote two rhyming poems, which I usually shy away from. I wrote a couple of acrostic poems too; haikus and lunes; experimental forms, and ultimately tried to have fun with it. Absolute success, as amid horrible headaches and jumbled up errands, I found my voice can be louder than I though it could be. I also found out that I can say anything I want. I forced myself to not self censor and to avoid the hiding behind analogies all the time. I know there are phrases or words that repeat from poem to poem but considering the nature of the project I think it sews all them all together; communal stitches of cohesion.

These 30 come from deep inside, I cannot deny that. I do not think I mind that kind of nakedness too much.
