NaPoWriMo – Day XXX – A Journey Ends

30 poems
30 days
The journey ends
The memory remains

Secrets shared
Truths revealed
New friends gained
Old wounds healed

Experiments in expression
In style and form
Some felt red-hot
Some lukewarm

Some flowed freely
Some were forced
At time the mind grew tired
And inspiration divorced

But throughout one marched
To journey’s end
Throughout one searched
Throughout one penned

Now destination is reached
And task is fulfilled
Now a break is warranted
For muse is chilled

Many works composed and written
Many thoughts openly shared
It was nice to see someone listened
To see that someone cared

I am tired and dried
So for now a short farewell
I shall see you I hope soon
When inspiration doth next swell

Its been an interesting experience writing poetry this regularly. When I first began this little adventure I wasn’t sure I would actually make it all the way through. I must definitely thank NaPoWriMo.net for their daily inspiration and their interesting challenges. There were times in the middle when I definitely would not have had something if it weren’t for them.

It been terribly exciting trying so many different styles and little tasks. I’m sure I’ll go back to some of them more often in the future, so look forward to that dear readers.

I also want to thank all the new people who have begun following the blog and been liking posts. Its been so amazing getting such positive feedback from you all. It’s hard writing regularly and putting yourself out there. You guys make it worth while : )

And to all the other people who took the challenge this month – Congratulations! We did it! It’s been real interesting reading some of your work and I’ve definitely found a whole lot of blogs I’ll be visiting more often.

As part of saying goodbye to this grueling, yet most enjoyable month of writing, I chose to look back at some of the work I penned (god how quickly one forgets!). Here are my favorites from the month. I’d love to hear which ones others particularly liked!

One last thing to mention – The posts have been coming regularly this month because of NaPo WriMo, but I’m afraid there will be a slight lull in posts in the following 21 days as I give my examinations for my Master of Laws degree. Following that I’m sure there will be a surge of stuff – especially more photography (I know I haven’t really put nay up in quite a while!) once my papers finish.
