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!
Nothing is Underrated
Nothing is underrated;
From nothing, pauses sprout and bloom
Into passing moments;
Birthing infant thoughts
Who dip their tongues to the well —
Drinking time sweet and slow;
Growing plump with ripened promise
They hang heavy from bended branch
Ready to be harvested and savored;
Or return to earth it’s borrowed time
All this from nothing.
I think this is possibly one of your best poems! It is beautiful in imagery and indeed “Growing plump with ripened promise”!!!

Thank you. I actually wrote most of these lines on the plane from Shanghai to London, not knowing what the prompt would be but just wanting to write something. When the prompt came I tried thinking of something to write and couldn’t so I repurposed these lines to work.
