Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is challenging my technical abilities more than my poetry writing skills. The challenge for today is to write a visual poem or perhaps a calligram. That’s a poem or other text in which the words are arranged into a specific shape or image.
It was challenging enough to come up with an idea and then arrange the words in a Word Doc. But that was only the beginning. Trying to import that format into my WordPress blog has been a nightmare unto itself. So I give. I scanned the document and pasted it here as a photo. It’s not nearly as poetic as it looks as free flowing words, but you’ll get the idea. Now it’s time for me to rise.
