napowrimo # 30, thanks for all the prompts and goodbye!

Free write today. After 29 prompts, I was actually stymied. Whatever shall I write about?

Lessons Learned from NaPoWriMo

Procrastination is futile.

Also learned
I don’t need to be in my favorite place
using my favorite pen and journal
my favorite music in the background
with a glass of my favorite merlot,
I can write without a comfy setting,
under the strangest of conditions.

Spontaneity often counts more
than relentless effort .

Though poetry darts by on gauzy wings,
often missed in so much noise,
I learned the silence needed
comes from within.

Thank you ReadWritePoem
for the challenges,
for the good community of poets,
and for much, much more.
It's been extraordinary.

  1. I agree with everything you say in this poem, Wanda. Some of my best poems have been written in the loo.

  2. Good lessons all around, and excellently put. ^_^ Keep in touch!

  3. Yes it has been a learning curve and a lot of fun.
    I hope we keep in touch. Keep well and good

  4. of course a comfy chair
    and glass of wine
    are their own rewards =)

  5. Wanda,
    Wow how nice for the last poem. Let's do keep in touch.
    p.s. love a good glass of merlot

  6. Hey Wanda
    You probably won't see this comment. I noticed that in the past you were on my blog. What we have in common: older ladies diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2008 and we both know the meaning of syndecoche.
