A to Z Encore and NaPoWrimo Rap

AtoZ finale FINAL

WooHoo! Another Blogging from A to Z in the history books along with my first attempt at posting a poem every day for NaPoWriMo. As the Playful Poet, I attempted to match two contradictory words, using alliteration, and then craft a poem to express how such a paradoxical pairing might play out in the real world.  It required my left and right brain to play nicely together and I truly enjoyed the challenge! I hope y’all did too.

In the A to Z category, Obliviously Obtuse: a blissful state of mindlessness,” received the most likes. As for my Sunday NaPoWriMo poems, Raven’s Lore was a fan favorite.

A big “Thank You” to those who stopped by and to the many new friends I made this year. I continue to be amazed by your creativity and talent. Y’all are inspiring!

And now for an encore performance with a little number I call …

~ Rapping Rhyme ~

One more trip around the blogs
a few more clicks to share my thoughts
thirty days from A to Z
let’s write a poem for all to see
let’s mix it up and make it tough
alliteration is not enough
a paradox should do the trick
throw NaPoWrimo in the mix
let’s tell stories and have some fun
thirty days this challenge’s done
until next year when we meet again
farewell dear writers, poets, and friends


Z – Zealous Zombies

Zealous Zombies:when the dead get lively

Poem ~

awakened from their nightmare

the blurred lines of life too long

the gnawing sound of their hunger

muted by the living’s song

they navigate by moonlight

listening for the faintest sound

and when their hunger’s sated

they crawl back underground

Poetry ~ Night Flight

The moon was full
the night my stare caught your eye
I burned three shades of crimson
as I pointed to the sky.
You smiled and winked
from across the room
as I grinned and
mounted my riding broom.
You hitched a ride
and we both took flight
and there began
our wicked night

of love and magic
that burned too bright.
