Standard

Read full post here.

As of today, we are 2/3 through this year’s Na/GloPoWriMo! I hope you feel rich in poems.

Today, our featured participant is Chitraksh Ashray, where the “walking archive” prompt for Day 19 resulted in the charming tale of a magical stone.

Our poetry resource for today is Commonplace, a podcast that features “conversations with poets (and other people.”)

Today, in gratitude for making it to Day 20, our prompt asks you to write a poem about a handmade or homemade gift that you have received.

Chitraksh’s poem reminded me of a forgotten object, a quartz stone I had as a child, half on my windowsill & half which my parents had.

I love the poetry resource, I had a quick dip in and listen and will be back to have a proper look and listen during lockdown.

I have so many handmade gifts I could write about and many that I will write over time. I created a long list of remembered and treasured gifts, I also quite enjoyed the examples given in the original prompt;

‘It could be a friendship bracelet made for you by a grade-school classmate, an itchy sweater from your Aunt Louisa, a plateful of cinnamon toast from your grandmother, a mix-tape from an old girlfriend.’

I can see myself writing around this topic for a while!
