napowrimo in april, 2020, one day to go

Whew! We did it, everyone! Another Na/GloPoWriMo has come and gone! I hope that everyone enjoyed the challenge. You might have gotten thirty poems out of it — if so, congratulations! But even if you didn’t, I hope that you found inspiration and joy in our prompts, resources, and featured participants.

Our final featured participant for the year is Aloha Promises Forever, where the minimalist prompt for Day Thirty resulted in a thematically-appropriate haiku.

As usual, we’ll be leaving the “Participants’ Sites” list up until later this year, when we’ll start cleaning up and getting ready for Na/GloPoWriMo 2020.

Finally, thank you to everyone who participated! Your enthusiasm for writing and encouragement of other participants is a wonderful thing to behold. And wherever your poetry may take you until another April rolls around — happy writing!

poetry form week 29, Epiphany or Manifestation in writing poetry


Derived from the Greek word epiphaneia, epiphany means “appearance,” or “manifestation.” In literary terms, an epiphany is that moment in the story where a character achieves realization, awareness, or a feeling of knowledge, after which events are seen through the prism of this new light in the story.


a sample


once becoming a mother, some women become a good human, they babysit,

they feed, they find ways to nurture a fresh life,  if a mother ever frowns once,

the baby could grow doubt, if a mother ever feels too tired to feed, a hungry

child could lose confidence, I try to believe that: attitude matters,  a good childcare

leads to good bound between parents and children, James and George have become

presidents, they seem always being a good company to their family members.

e to ipi = negative 1

a poem by PatriciaA. Fleming

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of doubtfulness,
And joy have flown by.People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn’t easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn’t care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with wonders,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It’s become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and cheers,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what’s really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I’m the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And method of analysis I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It’s my time to sing and let my voice echo.

the world sings


a blog is a road

it shows and tells

education is very important,

so does your mental spirit,

one shall always choose academic excellence, independence, and knowledge,

once a good education is done,

we sit, working for pleasant lists:

cooking,  writing, art, knitting, fitness, and poetry,

because when we pick POETIC melody as our daily objective,

we are busy

and we have ourselves well rounded with research, hope, and joy.
