OctPoWriMo Day 31: Words Weave Truth

Learn more here!

Hello, and welcome to OctPoWriMo, Day Thirty-One!

What’s OctPoWriMo, you ask? Well, it’s a whole month of poetic creation ā€“ 31 poems in 31 days. It’s the creative baby of Morgan Dragonwillow and Julie Jordan Scott.

This year, I’ve followed many of the prompts, and had the double joy of play and discovery…

I hope you’ll stop by, settle in, and find a little bit of magic here!

Today’s prompt was to write about the month of poetic writing….

And now here we are, at the end of OctPoWriMo, and on the eve of NaNoWriMo. The trick-or-treating is done, and four children have dressed up, traded candy, and indulged the need for play and fantasy…

It’s been a day that followed a night of very little sleep…which has led to frayed tempers, ragged patience, and truncated endurance. My level of concentration is a little capricious today, which might mean my poem will be brilliant, or maybe that it’ll be a disastrous capper on a grand adventure.

I’ve visited quite a few new poet-bloggers, and read some truly amazing poetry. I plan to visit more of my fellow OctPoWriMo participants in the coming days, so that’s a gift that will keep on giving…

Either way, it’s been an incredible journey of self-discovery. I’ve used prompts that might not have occurred to me otherwise, explored new poetry forms I’d never heard of at the beginning of the month, and delved my soul. I’ve been bathed in language, and imagery, ideas, and connections. I’ve written some fiction connected to my poetry, and indulged some favorite characters.

It’s not only been a valuable experience for its own sake; it’s primed my creative pump for November’s adventure- drafting an entire novel in only a month.

But for now, there’s one poem left to be written, so here we go…

It’s going to be one final blitz, because I’m diggin’ the blitz! =D

Words Weave Truth

Month of wonder

Monthful of words

Words form images

Words shape reality

Reality afire

Reality swirling

Swirling in thoughts

Swirling with meaning

Meaning going deeper

Meaning ever shifting

Shifting perception

Shifting understanding

Understanding my world

Understanding myself

My self unveiled

My self deepening

Deepening and growing

Deepening poetically

Poetically strectching

Poetically deliving

Delving within

Delving without

Without excuses

Without fear

Fear of failure

Fear of opening

Opening to my life

Opening to fantasy

Fantasy whirling

Fantasy weaving

Weaving new realities

Weaving with wonder

Wonder what comes next

Wonder of creation

Creation a new delight

Creation as learning

Learning to see anew

Learning to feel

Feel life in the words

Feel their pulse and breath

Breath of life lived awake

Breath of life lived aware

Aware of its energy

Aware of poetry’s power

Power of cadence

Power of rhythm

Rhythm a dance

Rhythm my strength

Strength to live truth

Strength to write life

Life

Truth

  1. Well penned. I think many of us have felt that over the past month! I plan to poke back into your world from time to time. I love your writing. Thanks for a fun ride this month! šŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Fida. The base thought came to me while trick-or-treating, and I wrote it just after…it felt a bit disjointed, but, when I reread it, it was better than I thought it would be.

      That seems to be true for me with each of the blitzes I wrote last month…

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
