CELEBRATION

napowrimo#10..celebrating..friends....napowrimo April 2010


CELEBRATION

celebrating triumph of human imaginations
amidst pitfalls and calamities
writing every day with linguistic excitement
mystery and emotion
thirty day marathon of the creative mind
sometimes evily subversive
a slow process of subtraction one cell at a time
Howling Wolf blues with Ginsberg
like wounded animals fading into a cloak of gentleness
eating lemon chiffon cake
dancing to a gypsy guitarist under a sky of tangarine dreams
and whiskey in heaven
family of poets feeling good feeling bad
writing poetry
celebrating

NaPoWriMo is quite the celebration, and Howlin' Wolf would make a great soundtrack. This was a nice pick-me-up as we head into the second lap.

Nicely done! Howlin' Wolf is definitely a nice soundtrack, especially when reading Ginsberg's work. Thanks!

This made me smile, I hadn't even thought of using today's prompt to celebrate writing poetry and the challenge itself! I especially like "a slow process of subtraction / one cell at a time" wonderful concept/image even though I really don't know what it means. Thank you.

Love the beat era/slam poetry feel here. It moves at a great pace with a myriad of favorite memories for me! Thanks for this one!
