NAPOWRIMO #25

Today’s prompt:

As as child, I had two heroes: Wonder Woman and my mother. To me, they were one and the same. Both had long dark hair. Both were strikingly beautiful, and both had incredible strength.

Write a poem in which you pay tribute to your hero, past or present.

Here are few possibilities for inspiration:

  • What made your childhood hero so special? What traits did you envy? Are super powers involved?
  • Do you have more than one hero? Consider drawing a comparison between them.
  • Honor the everyday heroes among us — the policemen, the fire fighters, the troops — risking their lives everyday.
  • Did your hero ever fall from the pedestal you put him or her on?
  • Maybe you’re the hero you want to write about! Have you ever had a moment when someone has made you feel like a hero? Did you ever save a cat from a burning building? Or maybe it was something as simple as staying up all night with a friend who needed you.

In any case, share with us in your poem what made or makes your hero so deserving of admiration.

Spring has Sprung! It’s April Already! by Rosalind

When you live in Florida, winter lasts for about 20 days, and Spring my as well be summer. I have noticed though that evenings have been cool enough to head outside to a bench in the park and take some photos as well as do some writing. Of course as you all know my fellow writer’s, NaPoWriMo is here! Although I can’t say poetry has ever been my thing, I do plan to try and write at least a few! What better time you know? The weather seems just about perfect, and inspiration seems to run high this time of year. So, pick up a pen and some nice notebook paper, and head outside for a spell. You’re bound to feel the universe turning just right, and nature will send you some good ideas!
