I am not 100% sure my theme yet but my leading one right now is
"The Mind's imagine" I also might just try to write poems and not really have a theme, if I am allowed to do that. I still have a day(s) to decide soooooo you know let's take it then.
Also my goal is 5 Poems

"A suit case full of stars"

What am I
Expect for a
A calm wind in a prairie;
With a suit case full of stars

Am I bound to anyone?
Or do I simply let a few people
See the true mystery of my
Suit case full of stars

The weathering water
can not weather my cliffs
and these stars
that ellude the water

I feel pity
Cause my Cliffs
Are too high to climb
And their purpose has vanshied with it

Yet as I lay here
In this field
The water rippling
A clam settles over

And the stars shimmer brightly around me
And I can't help but dance
with those that shimmer
I forever will stare
at those stars
and those stars will
forever stare back

Indeed;
what am I?
except a cliff harboring
A suit case full of stars

my presence
peeks through the floors
like shadows

the evil mist
of my shadows
encompass this palace

Its marble floor
The Priceless pictures
And a rotting foundation

And you would gasp
At the grand chandeliers
I delicately set out

Yet you steer clear
Of my shadows
Forming in the corners

This twilight forest
The darkness that seems to creep around
The wolf that howls in the distance
The things that creep

And I cling to my horse
As I run fast
Past the weeping wood
And past the fallen clones

And even if my legs burn
I keep the beat of my march
Even as the darkness clings to me
I will be free.

Even if my voice is hoarse
I will not be speechless
I will not give up
my speech

Even if I had screamed through the night
I will not yield
I will not compromise
my mind

Even if I cry
I will strong
I will love
myself

One more poem to your goal! :D

The imagery in these poems is pretty great. I love the image of a suitcase full of stars, brilliance hidden away from people; and I can totally picture the shadows kind of pooling around the floor in my presence.

Ok Ok Ok, so before I post my last poem I would like to say one thing first.

1) This is written in french, which I am not fluent in (so if you are fluent in please keep in mind the grammar or entire thing may be off, as I am still very much learning)
2) It is extremely cheesy (Partly because this is the only poem I could make with the french I know, and partly because I was having a bit of poet's block [I say poet's block, cause my novels are actually coming along pretty well])
3) Because it is cheesy, you can not read the translation, and instead allow your imagination make it out to be a lot better than it is :)

Ok even if it is cheesy I am proud I wrote a poem in another language! I mean I barley speak french and I manged to write one of the most complex form of language in it! It may not be good, but gosh darn it I did it, and I will be proud of it!

And to those who I already know will say it, yes this is not as bad as I make it out to be especially if you read it in french and not into translated English, but hey it makes for some good humor, maybe?

Anyway, without futher ado, here it is

Ok that is very cheesy, And it sound's a heck of a lot better in french. But I hope you liked it even so. (or if you skipped the translation, are imagining an epic poem)

Ok, an hour and a half is left of this year NaPo, and I have just finished my goal of 5.

I want to give brief mentions and thanks so here we go.

@alliyah - how could I not include the master poet, and friend in here. You have encouraged me and provided me with ideas for a lot of poems, most of which did not end up here, but I appreciate the help and tips. And of course thank you for reading the poems. I honestly probably wouldn't even have 5 poems done if it was not for you getting me off watching something and instead made me write a poem.

@ShadowVyper - While it may not seem like, I actually did write a fish/biology poem for this at some point, that is lost to the sea's of forgotten WFP pads. And of course thank you for the encouragement on some of the times I was struggling with the poems (namely the second and fourth) [regardless of if you knew why or what you were encouraging. :)

@Tuckster - Some of your poems helps for inspiration, and of course all your support made making the poems that much easier! (BTW congratulations on your NaPo, it's awesome you got so far in your first attempt!)

@BlueAfrica - Thank you for the support when I had poet's block.

@Cadi - Thank you for reading, and complimenting my poems, it made making that final poem that much easier.

And lastly, thank you, to anyone who read these poems. And to those who have supported me I appreciate you all. Weather your reading in a day form now, reading the completed NaPo of the year, or in 4 years form now, where a person unkown to me now, and we have become great freinds and we are laughing at my attempts of poems for my first NaPo.

So, there we are, thank you for reading. And I hope to reach for 15 poems next NaPo, so see you there,

Ox
