A brief calamity

dissolving,

excites feeling:

growing hope.

Intrigued, just knowing

lifts my newly omnipresent peace,

quietens restless spirit.

Triumph unfolds,

venturing with xenophilia’s youthful zeal.

Today’s napowrimo.net prompt is to write an abecedarian poem, which works through the alphabet, either word by work, or line by line.  

April 12- just noticed my typo ‘ word by work’ in my comment above.  lol.  Sub-conscience speaking truth?  😉

    Very good! It doesn’t read as contrived to squeeze into the restrictions, and comes out as poetry!

  2. colonialist Says:

    *afterthought* You chickened out on the ‘X’. I don[‘t blame you!

  3. This describes my experience with the car wreck last weekend. Lesson learned, yet the event itself is a fading blur.

    • Glad you are well!

      When I was bedridden with my broken ankle, I kept notes about how the pain felt, and used it in a novel. I thought I’d remember the quality of the pain, but recorded just in case. Sure enough, I have forgotten everything I didn’t write down.

  4. This must have been quite a challenge. Incredible!

    • Not too bad, actually. Under 10 mins? (Until Colonialist pointed out I’d missed X!)
      I chose this variation because I figured it’d offer more challenge than the ‘start a sentence with the next letter’ version.
