2023 NaPoWriMo #30 (Palinode)

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 palinode – a poem in which you retract a view or sentiment experts see in an earlier poem.


Poetry Unfound
(a palinode of “Seeking Poetry”)

Stagnant waters, crashing harmonies,
Silently sinking under the weight of gravity
Beneath the soil, beyond snout’s reach
Confident in hiding; Certain not to be found.

Well the deed is done! I’ve completed all 30 poems in 30 days. Some of the poems I’m quite proud of. Others not so much. But either way I’m happy to have completed the challenge and fulfilled my commitment to myself. I did have fun for the most part, and for me that is what it’s all about. Thanks everyone that has come on the journey with me. What’s next? I’ve no idea. Perhaps a day off. Perhaps not. We’ll see.

Be well,

    You deserve a ribbon! Not everyone managed to get all the way through – and you did it while travelling! Hip-Hip-Hooray!
