So many questions!

NaPoWriMo was first held in 2003. It is an annual project where participating poets write a poem each day of April. There are optional prompts given by the site for writing. You don’t need a blog for taking part. You just need to promise yourself that you will write a poem every day of April.

why is the grass green?
and why the sky blue?
why arenโ€™t all roses red?
and why is clear dew?

why are clouds so high?
and nothing too low?
why can only birds fly?
why canโ€™t fishies go?

how do trains go choo?
do they have a mouth?
why bears sleep in winter?
and why birdies fly south?

why he asks questions?
how he pesters me too?
why do I not tell him off?
coz he says every day,
โ€œDaddy, I love youโ€

The prompt at NaPoWriMo asks to write a poem in which all lines but the last are questions.

(14th April 2014)


Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
