Day 0 (EarlyBird) – NaPoWriMo’2020 – Hey Birdie!

Published 02nd April 2020 by viewsofpreethib

Day 0 – (Today’s Prompt) which was given on 31st March’2020) – An early-bird prompt, I’d like to invite you to write a poem about your favorite bird.


Hey Birdie!

Who’s there, hiding near my window,
Visiting me in the noon, with a mellow,
Oh! You gorgeous little feathered creature,
Chirping & flying around the creepers.

I whistle, trying to catch your attention,
You look here & there as you flutter,
Thanks to quaratine, I have a beautiful visitor,
Tiny long beaked birdie, one of god’s best creation.

Would you please mind to come a little closer,
Or could you please sit on my finger,
Can I take a selfie with you my dear?
As I can flaunt away being admired.

Hey birdie, would you visit me again tomorrow?
Shall I wait for you everyday near my window?
Can I sing & dance along with your mellow?
Would you bring back a smile on my face with a glow?

Day 30- NaPoWriMo’18 – Micro-Sculptures!

Published 30th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 30: And for our final (optional) prompt, I’d like you to take your cue from Borges, and write a poem that engages with a strange and fascinating fact. It could be an odd piece of history, an unusual bit of art trivia, or something just plain weird. While I cannot vouch for the actual accuracy of any of the facts presented at the links above (or any other facts you might use as inspiration!), I can tell you that there are definitely some poetic ideas here, just waiting for someone to use them.

I am using the below interesting fact out of the 25 interesting facts option given to us.

Willard Wigan, an English artist, works between heartbeats so he doesn’t destroy the piece he is creating. He uses rice or grains of sand and a surgical blade to create his “micro sculptures.”

Micro-Sculptures!

Micro-sculptures,
Tiny art of beauty.
It’s creation is mystery,
By Willard Wigan the artist.
Who is making history,
As he works between heartbeat.
His piece is never destroyed by him,
As the sculptures are in the eye of a needle.
His work admired by many people,
A rare talent he possesses.
Birds, animals, humans, things, you name it,
And he will have it sculpted.
A work of admiration,
Creating art in grains of sand and rice.
With the help of a surgical blade,
The great piece of art is created!

Day 29- NaPoWriMo’18 – Suspicious Heart!

Published 29th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 29: And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always). Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem based on the Plath Poetry Project’s calendar. Simply pick a poem from the calendar, and then write a poem that responds or engages with your chosen Plath poem in some way.

OMG! I thought since it is the second last day of the month the prompts are gonna get easier just like the previous two days. However, this prompt not only came as a shock but this really did scare me. I did not think I can do today’s prompt. Seriously, my heart kept saying go with the prompt but my mind went on saying “No Preethi, just give up”. But finally I am listening to my heart and giving it a try. And the poem I chose for today’s prompt is “Child” by Sylvia Plath.

Child  by Sylvia Plath

Your clear eye is the one absolutely beautiful thing.
I want to fill it with color and ducks,
The zoo of the new

Whose names you meditate —
April snowdrop, Indian pipe,
Little

Stalk without wrinkle,
Pool in which images
Should be grand and classical

Not this troublous
Wringing of hands,
this dark Ceiling without a star.

My take on the poem based on today’s prompt poem is as below. The words in bold are the words I chose from the poem “Child” by Sylvia Plath. Hope I got the prompt right and did justice.

Suspicious Heart!

Your clear eye is so beautiful and charming,
Wish I knew the dreams and wishes behind it,
The heart of the new.

Day 28- NaPoWriMo’18 – Post Card Love Letter!

Published 28th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 28:  And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Following the suggestion of our craft resource, we challenge you today to draft a prose poem in the form/style of a postcard. If you need some inspiration, why not check out some images of vintage postcards? I’m particularly fond of this one

 

Post Card Love Letter!

My Dear Love,

Please come back my heart is tearing apart,
Your absences and silences is killing my heart,
I can no longer sing or dance,
Neither can I listen, talk nor smile.
How do I reach you, how do I find you?
When you have disappeared without saying a word!
How do I tell you, my heart yearns for your presences and love.
How can I ask you all the questions buried in my heart?
How can I tell you what I wish and hope for!

Published 28th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 27: And now for today’s (optional) prompt. Following Lauren Hunter’s practice of relying on tarot cards to generate ideas for poems, we challenge you to pick a card (any card) from this online guide to the tarot, and then to write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.

The Magician!

The Magician has come thy way,
With the crossed nimbus,
Symbolising he is a  holy spirit,
His right hand holds the wand of mystic,
Pointing towards the sky,

Self-Warning!

Wakeup, It is a warning,

Learn to stay calm and keep smiling,
Better, lose your sharp tongue forever.

Day 23- NaPoWriMo’18 – Sounds Can Make You Smile Or Go Wild!

Published 23rd April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 23: And now for today’s (optional) prompt! Kate Greenstreet’s poetry is spare, but gives a very palpable sense of being spoken aloud – it reads like spoken language sounds. In our interview with her, she underscores this, stating that “when you hear it, you write it down.” Today, we challenge you to honor this idea with a poem based in sound. The poem, for example, could incorporate overheard language. Perhaps it could incorporate a song lyric in some way, or language from something often heard spoken aloud (a prayer, a pledge, the Girl Scout motto). Or you could use a regional or local phrase from your hometown that you don’t hear elsewhere, e.g. “that boy won’t amount to a pinch.”

Sounds Can Make You Smile Or Go Wild!

There are sounds that can make you smile,
There are sounds that can make you go wild,
Let me list out a few that makes me smile,
And a few that makes me go wild,
We all have a list of few hates and favourite,
Here is my list of both the sound.

Day 22- NaPoWriMo’18 – Bermuda Triangle Island!

Published 23rd April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 22: And now for our daily prompt (optional as always). I’ve found this one rather useful in trying to ‘surprise’ myself into writing something I wouldn’t have come up with otherwise. Today, I’d like you to take one of the following statements of something impossible, and then write a poem in which the impossible thing happens:
The sun can’t rise in the west.
A circle can’t have corners.
Pigs can’t fly.
The clock can’t strike thirteen.
The stars cannot rearrange themselves in the sky.
A mouse can’t eat an elephant.

Happy writing!

Bermuda Triangle Island!

The Bermuda triangle,
Threw our ship in a mysterious place,
We woke up with an aww-stuck vision,
Never could we imagine,
Here, the sun rises from the west.
