If you’re wondering what the title of this post means then let me explain. October is National Poetry Month and to celebrate this there is a challenge called OctPoWriMo where you have to write and post one poem every day for the entire month of October. So here is my first poem of the challenge. I used one of the prompts offered and the poem is basically me thinking about doing this challenge.
Right now, as we begin, I feel
The length of lines coiling out,
The rhythms of verse beating the air,
Metaphors mingle in the wind.
Poetry challenges push our creative demons
Over the cliffs of criticism.
Critics can’t fly.
