“The end of a melody is not its goal: but nonetheless, had the melody not reached its end it would not have reached its goal either. A parable.”
I might have never believed that I would do it when I started writing a poem a day. However, I am here, with my last segment, wrapping up my national poetry month writing challenge.
This week has been a beautiful week, with some very soulful prompts. In fact, I know that this will be my favourite week of the challenge so far. One of the highlights of this week was the villanelle I had to write. Apparently, it was easier to write a villanelle then to write fourteen lines of iambic pentameter. And while I have so much to tell you, I’d rather let my poetry speak this time. Maybe because I want to be cheesy, or just because I think we understand the language of poetry better.
While you read poetry from this week, and I hope from the first three too, I just want you to know that I really appreciate the kindness all of you have shown me throughout the challenge and before. Please let me know how this challenge or any of its poems have helped you, inspired you, or even disgusted you. I would love to know what you think of it. Meanwhile, I would also love to hear from you on the poetry of this week. Till then folks, auf wiedersehen.
With that comes the end of the poetry challenge. I am more than happy to have done it right, and I know I’ll sleep well tonight.
Meanwhile, I would love to bring to your notice a french poet, Atelier Du Phoenix, who has written really wonderful poetry inspired by my challenge. Souls like hers, make mine smile wide. Check her out here.
