We are extremely excited that it is that time of year again: NaPoWriMo is here! For those of you who are not familiar with this wonderful month of writing, the following is a very brief intro. NaPoWriMo is a challenge where one must write 30 poems in 30 days, because April is National Poetry Writing Month. For the past three years or so, Cypher Sessions has taken part in the challenge, and this year will be no different. Well, at least in that regard, because we are going to really do our best to challenge ourselves and deliver some mint poetry and rhyme-related content for your enjoyment. To get things started off, let’s start with Day 1’s take on this wonderful challenge:
The most impending difficulty that’s facing thee,
the hardest thing to craft without redundancy,
escaping cells of shortcomings, incarcerations of doubt,
consistently determining to figure out when gauging the tank, what’s left.
Void of vagueness is a fragrance that recently has gone out of style,
dictating concise efficiency for this new journey for a while,
Compile what is next, overbreadth will not be applicable to the remaining 29,
because in 28 seconds there might be feelings such as sublime.
Rhyme is always expected when architecting subject,
direct to the imagery concocted when eye sockets get rocketed,
to visions disciplined in abstraction, yet still reaching specific charm,
harm must be irreparable if you want to sound the alarm,
no critics can pick it, stick to it opinions too indignant, hesitant to attempt,
rightly so, not willing to craft what they believe themselves to be the best,
crests of family do nothing here as we’re of our own mold,
allow pen and pad to bond and grow together proper,
until poetic ambitions will splatter everywhere, as dreams still pave our road
That concludes Day 1 of NaPoWriMo 2016, make sure to look for Day 2 and all the other days to come with various types of poetry, rhyme, and hopefully a few guest surprises as well. Peace.
