#NaPoWriMo

….

I read, today, where someone lamented:

 

“So where is the Challenge?

There isn’t a Challenge,

when everyone writes what ever they want.

 

A poem a day, in any old way:

Where’s Competition in that?”

 

To which, I thought, I would comment:

 

“It’s not Competition, but Celebration!

 

A poem a day, in any old way,

is a poem every day that we want.”

 

Competition, Cooperation –

In poetic circles, poetic thought

anapestic, iambic are forms to be sought.

 

Competitive Challenge, as forms they are not.

Celebration is effort where all poems are wrought.
