NaPoWriMo #17 – International Haiku Day

Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! It’s Day 17 of National Poetry Month and, coincidentally, it’s International Haiku Day, so I followed the April PAD Challenge of writing a haiku today, and am again saving the NaPoWriMo prompt for a later date. In fact, I was thinking today…that after April is over that I will come back in and pick up the prompt challenges that I haven’t written for one, or the other, of these two places and give them a go. It will just give me more poems to work with later on down the road, right? Ideally, anyway! So here’s my poem (even though haiku doesn’t necessarily have a title), “Out on a Limb,” the prompt I used, and the one from Napowrimo to use later:

Out on a Limb

My cats and I share
a big love of bird watching:
sweet tweets of our hearts.

The Day 17 April PAD Challenge prompt:

Today is International Haiku Poetry Day! Click here to check out a post from The Haiku Foundation. So guess what we’re doing today?

For today’s prompt, write a haiku. Simple as that. Or well, if you’d prefer, write a poem about haiku; I’ve done this before. So that’s an option too; or write about poetic forms in general.

The Day 17 NaPoWriMo prompt:

Today, I challenge you to find, either on your shelves or online, a specialized dictionary. This could be, for example, a dictionary of nautical terms, or woodworking terms, or geology terms. Anything, really, so long as it’s not a standard dictionary! Now write a poem that incorporates at least ten words from your specialized source.

If you get any poems from the prompts that you want to share, post in comments!

Keep writing!
