2023 NaPoWriMo #23 (Numbered)

April is here again and that means its National Poetry Writing Month and for my second year I’ll be joining the 30 poems in 30 days challenge hosted by napowrimo.net. For this challenge, a poetry prompt will be provided daily during the month of April and if I can keep on track I’ll achieve the 30 poems in 30 days goal. So enough chatter…let’s go! It’s time for NaPoWriMo!

Write a poem that has multiple numbered sections. Attempt to have each section be in dialogue with each other.


Having set the stage,
She sits quietly
Allowing silence
To grow patiently

Act I
I see you over there
Shy and scared
Across from me
In the empty chair

Act II
Peering over from the couch
An older me looking expectantly
His eyes shadowed by decades
I’ve yet to see

Things were said
Tears were shed
Behind a curtain of confidentiality
Details to be left unsaid.

She notes the time
And gives the sign
Good work, she says to us
See you again next time.

Be well,
