A very happy Saturday to you all! I hope the first day of Na/GloPoWriMo whetted your appetite for even more poetry.
Today’s featured participant is The Cat’s Pajam, which gives us a dreamy, sensual, and mysterious poem in response to Day One’s “story about the body” prompt.
Our daily featured online magazine is TYPO, which has published thirty-three issues, all of which you can browse. From their newest issue, I’ll point out Jasmine Dream Wagner’s “Fallen Angels,” a rumination on life in the internet age.
And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always). Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem based on a word featured in a tweet from Haggard Hawks, an account devoted to obscure and interesting English words. Will you choose a word like “aprosexia,” which means “an inability to concentrate”? Or maybe something like “greenout,” which is “the relief a person who has worked or lived in a snowy area for a long time feels on seeing something fresh and green for the first time”? Whatever you choose, happy writing!
