And so it begins – 30 days and nights of wild poetic abandon. This year, just like last year, I will be participating in both the NaPoWriMo and Poetic Asides daily poetry prompts.
I am kicking off the 2013 April PAD season with this first offering for the NaPoWriMo prompt. The objective is to take the first line of a poem and make it the first line of ours.
By: Meena Rose
She walks in beauty, like the night
Daring me to come closer;
Like a moth drawn to the flame,
My feet move of their own volition;
Each step drawing me closer to a
Brush with the ineveitable;
There she stands, shimmering and glimmering,
Seductress, enchantress, warrior princess;
With resignation, I shake my head dissolving
An illusion, a mirage – that which cannot be;
I am me and will never be she –
I human; she goddess.
