It's National Poetry Month

In case anyone doesn't know, April is National Poetry Month. In an effort to encourage some creative thinking in myself, I've decided to participate.

There's a nifty site to help provide inspiration and encouragement. Check it out: NaPoWriMo


Day 1 was technically yesterday, so here's a make-up poem based on the first prompt provided by NaPoWriMo. This poetic form is known as tetractys, a type of cinquain.


Green

Wise
Woman,
Decaying,
Drank her water.
Like Dickinson, concerned with death, yet not.
