NaPoWriMo 2020 ~ National Poetry Writing Month

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.

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!

My Wish

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.
