Sweet Jam (2022 NaPoWriMo #23)

With a little digging I found another series of poetry prompts being provided by NaPoWriMo – 30 Poems in 30 Days. I’m starting in the middle and I’ll see how it goes as to whether I work to catch-up with the prior prompts or just carry on forward.

Prompt 23

Write a poem that is short and snappy — with rhyme/sound play.


This prompt kinda feels like “write an amazing poem” and little more. Perhaps I’m having a little bit of performance anxiety and it’s making me a bit snarky. Forgive me, please. Let’s see what happens.

Sweet Jam

I’m short
Coming to you
Pull you off your
Dance, dance, dance
To my sweet jam beat.

Be well,

      Haha. Your response is in perfect beat!


  2. You’ve been churning out the poems, Monty! I like this little one. Definitely makes me feel like bopping.

      Thanks! I feel a little bad — like I’m flooding those kind enough to read my blog with too much, but I feel compelled to write lately.


      1. I know that feeling of compulsion. You have to run with it (or at least you feel like you need to run with it).
