It’s that time of year again: NaPoWriMo!!! National Poetry Month (optionally GloPoWriMo ~ Global Poetry Writing Month) comes every April and challenges poets (and anyone else who wants to take a shot at it) to write (and post) a poem every day through all of April. That’s 30 poems in 30 days. https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/10938935/posts/2140
So, today is the 2nd. I guess if I am able to post a poem every day that will be 29 poems in 29 days! We shall see!
Once I wished I could climb to the top of the highest mountain.
When I got there, I wished I could soar through the clouds like an eagle.
While soaring, I wished I could dive into the ocean and catch a large fish for dinner.
After catching the fish and letting him go, I wished I could swim to a beautiful coral reef to see the clownfish.
Once I saw the clownfish, I wished I could have that beautiful fish at my home.
That wish can’t come true.
I have to leave that clownfish in his own home.
He needs his home to survive.
My house cannot meet his needs.
I wish that I lived on the side of an ocean where I could have an underwater bedroom with a glass window to see the fish swim by.
I wish all of the clownfish could know that they should swim by my window, where they would be safe.
