NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011

19. Close your eyes and listen to the sounds around you. If the sounds are peaceful, write a poem with a violent word as the title. If the sounds are loud, write a poem with a kind word as the title.


Televisions blaring the same old news
killing in the streets hearts being used
for once in world can we please find
a way to bring peace, is anyone kind?
No more to hear that same old boring *hit
For once I would like to hear silence a bit
so off I went to the garden one more time
and silence filled my heart and my mind !

This one was another struggle ... hope you all like it !


  1. You may haved struggled but you sure can't tell. Another good write.

  2. Sometimes struggle sends us so,
    Silent, we watch our garden grow.
    Away from angst and kept from harm,
    Wrapped in nature's soft green arm.
    Tilling, planting, creating soil,
    Collecting bounty from my toil.

    Harder than I thought. Always looks so easy when someone else does it. From one gardener to another...
