NaPoWriMo 2018: 8/30

Copy of 2017 NaPoWriMo

Besides the daily haiku, I’ve been getting prompts from Two Sylvias Press everyday.  I am woefully behind on the daily prompts!  That said, I’m pretty please with myself that I sat down and knocked out some revisions on my novel for writing group.  We meet tomorrow.

So on Day 3 the daily prompt was to include the following:

  • a vintage typewriter
  • a college
  • a state
  • a piece of jewelry
  • a tool
  • a vintage album
  • and begin the poem:  “In a few days, I’ll be…”

Here’s my take:

Leaving SoCal

In a few days, I’ll be in Oregon
leaving the SoCal cement and beaches
for trees, hummingbirds and a tumbleweed connection
taking my vintage typewriter and a suitcase

leaving the SoCal cement and beaches
saying goodbye to the plastic personalities
taking my vintage typewriter and a suitcase
“travel light,” was my grandmother’s motto

saying goodbye to the plastic personalities
they couldn’t believe I was leaving for Lewis and Clark College
“travel light,” was my grandmother’s motto
and always bring a hammer, words from my brother

they couldn’t believe I was leaving for Lewis and Clark College
they gave me a garnet ring as proof of love
and always bring a hammer, words from my brother
It’s a handy tool when you come to a STOP sign.

they gave me a garnet ring as proof of love
for trees, hummingbirds and a tumbleweed connection
It’s a handy tool when you come to a STOP sign.
In a few days, I’ll be in Oregon
