National Poetry Writing Month- 2017
REQUIREMENTS: Because today is the ninth day of NaPoWriMo, we were asked to write a nine-line poem. I decided to use the pattern found in a Magic 9. Its pattern is a. b. a. c. a. d. a. b. a. It has no specified meter.
Ahab Has Whales. I Have Bees.
Warm weather waits with the gentle breeze
I rest… content to reflect on the day’s endeavor
Relaxing with Clara, my pudge-nosed boxer and sweet teas
I turn the page… anticipate reentering Ahab’s eternal struggle
Flipping page after page, the chase unfolds with ease
The soothing drone all-a-flitter… melittology, my passion
Echoes of struggles, Ahab and Moby. Me and my bees
Clara naps, content. Her weekend adventures so clever
Me… Another blob of my honey on biscuit. I’m so easy to please.
