Speak to Your Affliction

Sometimes, we just want to scream at something (or someone) that drives us insane. Perhaps, we want to have some stern words with the pimple that always appears when least wanted, or with the person who parks in front of our driveway on the day we need to leave the house in hurry, or with the physical pain that insists on hurting more intensely on the morning when we must look sharp and fresh for a job interview. Well, my Wicked Luvs, let’s let them have it.

For day 26 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Metaphorically sit in front of the thing (or person) that ails you, and let your poem tell it (him or her) exactly what’s in your mind.

Instructions

They might visit you (it’s polite).

* If you use this prompt, please link it to your post. And if you are feeling extra delicious, link your poem to the main entry. Show others where to go. Spread the word. Linking back to the source… it’s just the right thing to do (I’m running out of clever lines *cough*).

Anticipating Mayhem

I think someone sabotaged my clock; moved it ahead an hour, when I wasn’t looking. It was 7:00pm just five minutes ago, wasn’t it? Fine, so it wasn’t. I still think time is messing with me…

For day 25 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem that lets us glimpse into how you ready yourself before facing known troubles, and what you do to cope once mayhem has done its thing.

Art Speaks to Art

I’ve never been good at making lists of my favorite books, songs, paintings… of my favorite art and artists. I love so many creative minds that have blessed the world with more sources for creativity. However, the written word is—without doubt—my favorite kind of art. And if I had to choose a writer whose mind, work and artistic ethics I completely admire, it has to be Neil Gaiman. The man is intelligent, has an enormous heart… and when it comes to telling tales, he explores the brightest and darkest bits of the human psyche… often, through the same character and story.

For day 24 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Base a poem on a piece by one of your favorite artists. I can’t wait to see your poetry speak to music, to fiction, to painting, to sculpting, to other poetry, to tightrope walking…
