Three Days Left

The End of
National Poetry Month

In sight:
Finish line,
Tunnel-end light,
Twenty-nine...
Then thirty...
Then it's done!
Next is ONE!
A new calendar page
Poems step off stage.
Let's make a deal, though,
For real, you know?
Let's keep posting our poems!

Mommy N. I like the sound of this poem (I like the meaning even more).

I want to THANK YOU so much for your poetry challenge. My novel has languished for a year because I could not get past my chapter 17, It is the only chapter in the book written almost entirely in verse. Although I am not done with my book yet I have nearly gotten through this chapter because of you challenge.

I still have two more days of writing to go - so no claim of victory yet... but again,
THANK YOU!

You're very welcome, Marty. I am glad you took my challenge (and got so much out of it). I have really enjoyed reading your "snippets" this month.

This has been such a wonderful incentive to keep me writing! Thank you so much :) I'm hoping to knock out another couple of poems in the next day or so. Your poem is great!
