Take a word that’s part of you — your name, your birth month, your favorite animal, your guiding principle. Write that word vertically down a page and use the letters to start the lines of a poem. When you’re done, you’ll have an acrostic poem. (Though the prompt could be as simple as “write an acrostic poem,” the word sounds scary this late in the month. This prompt is designed to ease you into the final stretch. Don’t stress too much about the word you choose. NaPoWriMo is just for fun. Are you having fun?)
Begin Each Day
Begin each day in
Reverence for all existence.
Indelible memories of nature’s
Dance permeate my waking dreams - a
Glorious testament to our creator’s
Eloquence… a celebration of his
Technicolor playground for our souls.
