NaPoWriMo

NaPoWriMo stands for National Poetry Writing Month and usually takes place during the month of April each year. It is a challenge for any writer to write at least one poem a day for a month! Naturally the made-up word already looks like a nonsense word and that is how I was drawn to it. Actually a friend of mine suggested it and when I checked it out I was hooked.

Here is a summary and some favourite creations of each year:

2013: I wrote a haiku each day 

Slaap

slaap is soet warm stoep
mymerend insluimer broei
soos kat luilekker.

**********

My kar volg joune.
Ons speel wegkruipertjie in
jou truspieëltjie.

***********

Freedom day

Are we really free?
It has been nineteen years since
We are still A-part.
