It is finished.
I posted my final poem for the month of April for Singapore Poetry Writing Month. It has been a crazy rollercoaster ride, and I’ve missed you all! I have been tempted to peek in every now and again but have tried very hard to stay focused on writing that one poem every day. My goal was to use a poetic form for every poem attempted; I am happy to report I managed to do just that. I wasn’t able to fulfil all 30 prompts, but on days I was too befuddled, I settled for a NoPrompt poem. 30 days 30 poems.
Through the month, I watched my Dad labour with recuperation from his week in ICU. I am amazed at & inspired by his determination to regain muscle mass, function and his appetite. His zest for life and strong desire to continue travelling & eating are spurring him on! Go Dad!
Leaving you with a rendition of the song lyrics which inspired “unbidden”. Looking forward to seeing more of you all in the month ahead!
