NaPoWriMo Day 1

Almost forgot today's the day we start NaPo!! This is my first year doing NaPo (I've (unsuccessfully) done NaNo 3 times now), and I'm looking forward to being successful with this one. I haven't written very many poems in years past, so there might be some rusty poems here but I promise to publish each poem on here, whether I think it's very good or not. I'll let you be the judge on that :)

Most days my poems will probably go up just after midnight, but I'll try very hard to post every day.  Today's prompt was to take the first line of a favourite poem and write your own poem with it, or use one of the first lines given:Walter de la Mar's Silver jumped out at me, so I went with it.

Slowly, silently, now the moon
sleeps. Longer days and shorter nights
Bring the sun smiling down on kids in the park, bears
on the paths -- too icy to travel.

Slowly, silently, now the snow
falls. Nature’s giant April Fool’s prank:
Spring is here, summer soon
to follow -- rain is on the way.

Slowly, silently, now the moon

Happy writing fellow NaPo's!
--Andrea Pandrea


  1. Well done. Noe poet myself, but most important is to write something down and get the creativity flow. Practise makes perfect, right? :)

    1. Thank you! Just popped over to your poems, they're pretty good :)
