Phew, finding it hard to get these daily scribblings out, what with it being the Easter holidays and having the kids around, not to mention a hormonal puppy!
This is what the (helpful) NaPoWriMo website says -
"We’re almost two weeks in now, and this is usually where people start to flag a bit…but take heart, it only takes 5 minutes to write a poem. Yes, it usually takes longer to write a good one – but the point here is to just get something down, not to edit it to perfection. You can do that in May!
In that spirit, I present today’s prompt: the five minute poem. Get a kitchen timer, or use your watch, whatever. You are NOT ALLOWED to spend more than five minutes on this poem. Here’s a bit of a topic, so you don’t waste time: write your very fast poem about something fast. Jackrabbits or bullet-trains, comets or greyhounds. Quick, like a bunny!"
Here's what I did - it took 2 mins..
If Usain Bolt was as fast as you
we'd be over the hedge and past the moon,
dinging at the edges of all we know
while the coffee cooled..
