NaPoWriMo - Day One 4/1/2013

Have you heard about NaPoWriMo?

I hadn't and since I just discovered this, I've decided I'm up for the challenge.

It's been a while since I've felt the desire to write poetry, so we'll see how it goes.

April 1, 2013

She walks in beauty, like the night
silvered whiskers quivering....anticipating
the lure of a mouse in tall grass
the sudden swoop of a fragile wingspan
shocking her into the pounce.

She sleeps in serenity, like the stars
the twitch of an enormous white paw
or the slow rise and fall of tiny ribs
all that proves she sleeps
and has not drifted into the beyond.

She loves in totality, like a mother
and nothing can change the adoration seen in a glance
or the rub of cheek against cheek
the slow knead of soft pink pads
or claw-less toes massaging skin.

She trusts in devotion, like a child,
nothing can harm her, no pain will come
so long as you're there
a kind word, a gentle stroke,
a lap to hold her world.

She rests in peace, like a sunset
mourned until a memory returns and brings a smile,
or a tear of remembrance
A simple stone marks her presence in our world,
a presence still and forevermore missed.

In loving memory of our Perfect Precious Princess Boo.

Hi, Donna,

I'm Brianna, from [something clever HERE], and I just wanted to let you know that I got your comment on my poem "Weeds" today. It made my day. No joke, it made me smile so big that my teeth took over my face for the rest of the morning. Thank you so much.

And I wanted to say that I really enjoyed your April 1st poem. I think it was super unique that you wrote about a cat, and I love the first line you used! Beautiful poem (both yours, and the inspiration).

Wishing you best of luck with NaPoWriMo! Write on!

Thank you so much! Love that I can still make people happy lol

I'm still getting used to Wordpress, so yeah, it's been a while since I had that blog but figured it would be easier to use the reader to read everyones entries for NaPoWriMo, so I'm trying to keep track of both blogs now :)
