A to Z Challenge,  NaPoWriMo,  Poetry

Elvis Has Left the Building

It’s done. The last day of both challenges. I’m going to miss it. I’ve met some new people, read some interesting blogs, and cemented current friendships. Not that we have to stop, but now we won’t be required to keep up with our blogs or visit others. It will be a change to sit down and realize that I don’t have to post if I don’t want to. But, I am proud of the work I’ve done. I stayed challenged and learned some new techniques.

The last poetry prompt was to write a poem backwards. Make your ending first and your beginning last. For my final poem I chose to write a palindrome, which does exactly that. I took some liberty with it, though, as is my artistic right. It’s been fun, and I hope a lot of the people who have visited continue to keep stopping by.

Final Blogging letter: Z

ZAP!

Things change in an instant

And you’re left wincing from the sting,

Broken-bleeding-raw

Scraped from the inside out,

Heart fragmented,

Left to wither in your shaking hand.

ZAP!

Shaking in your hand,  left to wither,

Fragmented heart,

From the outside in, scraped,

Raw-bleeding-broken

Wincing, you’re left the sting and,

Change things in an instant.

ZAP!

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
