NaPo 2019| what are we supposed to be doing?


This is my last official color to tackle for NaPo and just like last year for my final day I decided to write a poem styled off of a poem @Kaylaa wrote in 2017, which uses a piece of every NaPo thread title - I think I managed to get at least a word of each one in here. See if you can find the words from your NaPo title in the poem!

There are still a couple poems I started in April that I might tack on to the end of the thread, but now seems like a fitting time to say a huge thank you to everyone who followed my thread, hit the "like" button, commented or encouraged me. You are all seriously wonderful and I can't thank you enough.

And you did it! Congrats alliyah!

I like how your NaPo touched upon really diverse themes- from homesickness to love to religious themes and what not. It was fun to read to say the least!

I realize NaPo is over - but I had about 5 more poems started to go with the thread, and these 2 I'll have to post, I think they give some closure to the collection. The top portions in the little squares are from poems I wrote for my NaPo 2018, that I thought would be interesting to recycle. Thanks for reading!

“Such nonsense!" declared Dr Greysteel. "Whoever heard of cats doing anything useful!" "Except for staring at one in a supercilious manner," said Strange. "That has a sort of moral usefulness, I suppose, in making one feel uncomfortable and encouraging sober reflection upon one's imperfections.”
— Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
