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 aren’t all roses red?
and why is clear dew?

why are clouds so high?
and nothing too low?
why can only birds fly?
why can’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,
“Daddy, I love you”

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.
