NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 30

It's the last day of NaPoWriMo.  I read that there were 1,500 participants this year which equals 45,000 poems -  That's a lot of poetry!

It's one thing to write but it takes a lot of courage to post your work to the world and with the short time span, there's not a lot of editing going on.
Hats off to everyone who participated!!

Thanks to all my friends who read and liked my poems and a special thanks to my friend Rosanne who kept me motivated throughout the month while writing her own poems in "Work in The Margin"  It's definitely more fun to write when you have others to encourage you and bounce off your ideas.

And now for my final 2014 NaPoWriMo poem....

Never say goodbye
cause you never know
Just which way
the wind will blow

Never say goodbye
It's just too sad
Always remember
the times you had

Never, ever say goodbye
Endings always make my cry

NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 29

I'll make a secret wish and send it on it's way
Tomorrow when it comes will be a bright new day

I'll make a secret wish and hope it will come true
Everything from now on, will be brand new

I'll make a secret wish when I turn out the light
This is what I'll dream all through the night

NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 28

Scoops of ordinary days
Light sprinkles of sadness and sorrow 
Spoonfuls of laughter and love
Gobs of happiness
Topped with fond memories that make up my life

NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 27

I've noticed that my poems post on Pacific Time I'm grateful because it makes this late night post still Under the Wire..

No sound is heard - none
All is peaceful and quiet
Time stands still right now

NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 26

I wish for you
A dream come true
and every happiness

A simple prayer I give
your life I hope it is
ever filled with new

May laughter and sweet smiles
take you through the miles
all the days you live

NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 25

Tonight's prompt - an Anaphora.  Anaphora is a literary term for the practice of repeating certain words or phrases at the beginning of multiple clauses or, in the case of a poem, multiple lines. The phrase "A time to," is a good example of anaphora.

I was sitting here tonight thinking about friendship.  I am really fortunate in that I have seven friends that I can really say are here for me always.  Each relationship is unique - some go back to my early childhood and I know that I could call any of them day or night for any reason at all.   This is to my best friends!

My true friends are always there
and I will keep them in my prayers
My true friends let me talk
and I know they'll never walk
My true friends laugh with me
and when I'm sad they let me be
My true friends stand by my side
and hold me up when it's a rough ride
My true friends are the best
and I know I'm truly blessed

NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 24

From the NaPoWriMo FB Page - write a poem that begins with the last thing you can remember
someone saying to you today or yesterday. See if you can use that line two or three times.

I took the liberty of using a last line said to me in a "yesteryear"

See ya in a few.....
I wish that I knew
that this was the last
and now it's in the past

See ya in a few
the times we had were few
when compared to the whole
it rips apart my soul

Now all things are new
See ya in a few.....
