NaPoWriMo #12

secret message

the door has a secret to tell you

it whispers in the morning
tales of old oak trees and
moonlight breezes
grass ferns and late nights

3:14 am
it tells me
and I am simply
passing on a message

I used a mix of the Read Write Poem prompt and Kelli's prompt for today. Kelli's prompt said that the poem shouldn't use any punctuation... I had some trouble with that, but it turned out to be really fun. (By the way, does a colon count as punctuation??)


Q said...

Yes, a colon is punctuation.

Yeah, I just realized that was a really stupid question. I forgot that colons could be used in sentences, not just time...
