“LIFE” – NaPoWriMo 2015 , Day 30 – last day of napowrimo 2015

And now for our final prompt (still optional!). For the last day of NaPoWriMo, I’d like you to try an odd little exercise that I have had good results with. Today, I challenge you to write a poem backwards. Start with the last line and work your way up the page to the beginning. Another way to go about this might be to take a poem you’ve already written, and flip the order of the lines and from there, edit it so the poem now works with its new order. This will probably feel a bit strange (and really, it is a bit strange), but it just may help you see the formal “opening” and “closing” strategies of your poems in a new way!

This is my last piece for NaPoWriMo 2015.  See you all next year !



it’s me, it’s only mine

because you have nothing to do with what is mine

and what i own, it’s only mine

i celebrate myself about my life
