Happy Halloween and welcome to the last day of my adventure with poetry writing. I had some missteps along the way, but I think I managed to get a few up that I really liked. The overall experience has been a great one.
I am grateful to the OctPoWriMo organizers/creative team for putting this together and for the great prompts. Be sure to visit their blogs as they go into NaNoWriMo and other November writing challenges.
My last poem speaks to my experience with this challenge. Here I would also like to say thanks to those of you who have joined me on this challenge and for the new people I have met along the way. Thank you. Hope to see you around. 🙂
What It’s About
It’s has not been about perfection
It hasn’t really been about being good
It has been about trying for the best
It’s been-a lot- about pushing myself
It’s not as if I am a poet
It’s not like I have all the skills
It has been a lot about learning and
It’s been about allowing myself to try
It’s not been about competition
It has not been about harsh critique
It’s been supporting each other & also
It’s been about sharing love of poetry
It’s not really truly over
It will not end today
It’s been about changing ourselves.
It’s about continuing to change.
