Well, the first poem of (hopefully) 24 has been posted. I have 5 minutes before I need to start the next one.
Last year I had a theme & I posted every poem both here on my blog & again on the official Poetry Marathon page.
This year I am going to respond to the official poetry prompts & see where that takes me. I’m also not going to post every poem here for two reasons.
- It takes up too much time, something which gets pretty precious towards the end of the 24 hours.
- Some of the poems turned out okay, and even publishing them on a private blog can prevent them from being entered into some comps/submitted to certain journals, so I’d like to keep my options open.
I might occasionally during the mara, if I think any poem has sufficient charm, post a few here to share. But I need to stop waffling the next prompt is due any second & Poem 2 needs to get started …
