Back to National Poetry Writing Month

by allisonkujiraoka

I’ve come to anticipate the first of April as the time when I MUST write and publish here.  I regret that work on the blog has been almost completely dormant since this time last year.  I came out of last April incredibly excited and inspired to write, and then found myself doing a lot of composing in my head, nothing more.  Well, on to NaPoWriMo 2015!  Here’s my first offering:




I face that glowing orb.

A magnetic pull, limb-propelling.

There is nothing akin to this warmth.

Synthesize our colors,

Map our neighborhoods,

Sway our clock-hands,

and please,

Hide only when you must.
