So in an effort to branch out and share more of my poetry, I have started posting on the SoundCloud platform. With that said, here is my first “track” (sounds real professional right?) It’s a Valentine’s Day poem I previously shared, just wanted to test it out. Have a listen.
Here’s a poem I wrote #valentinesday 2013. I’ve been behind on posting and sharing poetry this week so I thought I’d repost this one. #LOVEday #Relationships #Dating #haiku #poetry #instagrampoetry #communityofwriters
The national poetry month challenge is supposed to be for 30 straight days of writing poetry, however, in true fashion, I have fallen off and wittled my writing down to Wednesdays as my days get busy. So in an effort to at least stay on track, here’s this week’s contribution. Today’s theme from the Writer’s Digest website is: Reason
and the greatest of these
the reason I love
God told me I had no choice
love is the best commandment
Today kicks off National Poetry Month. It also kicks off my annual attempt to complete 30 poems this month by following the Writer’s Digest Poem A Day writing prompt challenge. Here we go! Today’s theme: morning
I have been thinking a lot about my grandmothers lately and I felt compelled to write a mother’s day poem for them. And Happy Mother’s day to all mothers everywhere! That includes birth mothers, adopted mothers, aunties, grandmothers, sisters who play a mother’s role, and anyone who cares for someone in a maternal way!

I recently started following Writer’s Digest‘s Poetic Asides editor, Robert Lee Brewer. For the month of November, the challenge is to write a poem-a-day and submit your finished work for a Chapbook Challenge. I’m getting a late start (10 days in) but I’ve decided that since I haven’t written any poetry since National Poetry Month with the NaPoWriMo Challenge (www.napowrimo.net), I thought November is as good a time as any to write new poetry. So here goes.
Find out the daily Chapbook Challenge prompts by visiting Poetic Asides on Writer’s Digest at:
Mariya’s Prompt: Write a matches poem. The matches could be sticks that make fire. Or it could be matches from a game. Or the verb of “to match.” Or as in the phrase “He’s not a good match for you.” Or whatever other match you can make.
