Fifteen

I put a lot of thought into most of the topics our poetry has explored these last two weeks. Today’s prompt was inspired by, um… the date. After I published the initial announcement, I was annoyed with myself. Your laziness has reached new levels of lameness, I said to me. But now that I’m looking at this again, I kind of like it. I suspect we’ll bring some wonderful bits of yum, from our trip to memory’s home.

Where were you when you were fifteen? What did you love and/or hate about the place? For Day 15 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem about the town or city where you spent the fifteenth year of your life. If a poem about said place doesn’t move your muse, try something memorable that happened when you were that age. Introduce us to fifteen-year-old you.

Cultivate Life, by Lewis Lavoie“Cultivate Life”, by Lewis Lavoie

Note: I found the above piece by chance, and fell in love with it: “Mural Mosaic is a process invented by artist Lewis Lavoie that takes individual paintings and places them in a specific order to create a large painting… Lavoie and his partners Phil Alain and Paul Lavoie began the Mural Mosaic journey to bring communities together using their murals as examples of ‘Unity through Diversity’.”

Valued Activities in My Poetry

I’m so excited about today’s prompt. I enjoyed Poetizing the News… of 1913 to no end—both the reading and the writing. But poetry focused on the things we like to do during the cruellest month just promises so many delights…

For Day 14 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem that includes at least three activities you truly enjoy doing in April.

Poetizing the News… of 1913

Yesterday’s prompt was… tough. So I hope our muses bless us with lighter inspiration today. I spent at least two hours reading news articles, ads, personals… from 1913. I should say that I found what I was looking for about ten minutes into my search, but old news have addictive qualities. I can’t wait to read everyone’s contributions.

For Day 13 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem based on a headline from April 1913. Please provide a link to your source, when possible. I think it would be interesting to read it after experiencing your poem.
