NaPoWriMo: 30 NEW Writing Prompts for National Poetry Month 2011

18. Write a poem about something small that is only 5 lines long... OURS IS...

Delicate winged furry
with colors vivid and bright
all the tiny hummingbirds
sipping nectar in the light
so fast their wings are blurry


Today is O

WOW O already !! going by fast isn't it ... OURS IS...


Overnight the weather turned
from Winter into Spring
just like that flowers bloomed
and birds began to sing

It would have been a perfect day
for the conditions were just right
but my whole world changed
unexpectedly overnight

It was an awful feeling when
your hand slapped my face
when loving emotions overnight
with hurtfulness were replaced

The darkness then surrounded
all of our happiest days
and overnight I wanted you
to die in very unusual ways

I thought of deadly ways
to make me feel much better
and overnight I hoped that
you were gone from life forever

I never thought of the consequence
of what my hopes would do
or that my hateful hurtful thoughts
would ever really come true

Then overnight my world of love
was forever changed by fate
for you were taken overnight
into heavens golden gate

Now Spring has lost its meaning
though it is still a beautiful sight
It will never take away the hurt
of what happened overnight
