  • Daily PCrewPick: April 20



    Every day during NaPo a Poetry Crew Member will pick a different poem that stood out to them from that given week to highlight. All recipients of the "PCrew Pick" will be collected in our "PCrew Pick Hall of Fame" and receive an exclusive badge at the end of the month.

    I was possibly a bit over excited when @Hannah appeared and started NaPo this year - I mean, an old YWS friend, excellent poet, and someone else who's also been 'round these parts possibly too long? Yes, please!

    Her poetry has long been a favorite, but I'm really enjoying the new depths being explored. Hannah has this ability to take a moment or an idea and paint a vivid image, or evoke a specific emotion.

    we are preparing
    our own soft gray pre-dawn stillness
    for someone to remember after passed decades

    I could quote the entire final stanza from today's poem, nostalgia tastes different now, but those lines just pack a punch. Couple that with her title? Yes, please. I love a good mixing of senses, and nostalgia having a taste is delicious - especially with a poem not about food.

    I look forward to @niteowl 's threads every year, and this year is no exception. The poem she posted today is beautifully biting, and her backstory on the specifics just make it that much better.

    Check it out here, and enjoy the juxtaposition of the title against the second stanza.

    9. you're calling on a sunday afternoon, and yet i'm the crazy one

    i told my psychiatrist
    i had visions of swirling stars
    and sunflowers and men without ears.

    perhaps i should have mentioned
    that i was at the van gogh exhibit.

    It's been a wild week of poetry so far, and the one that has been stuck in my mind is from Stories of the Synapses (with encryptions in between) by @avianwings47.

    i don’t remember when i started fearing
    my own skin.


    She has been challenging herself with narrative poetry, and this line has been living rent free in my head since I read it. It's beautifully scathing (which I love), but all of her poetry so far has been an interesting look at taking a single concept or image and diving right into it: good, bad, and intriguing in turns.

  • I'm late but oh well #napogoals is 30 poems, hopefully poem a day. I've also written a grand total of one poem(ish) and a line in 2024, so it's going just great so far.

    And like, jams and stuff. I like jams.
