I Fell For It…Again

I am so gullible. Naive even. I truly believed I wouldn’t fall for it, no matter what they did, no matter what they said. But my own nature betrayed me, so now it’s official.

I have entered NaPoWriMo’s April Poetry challenge.

My house is completely upside down right now. Chez Lunatic is indeed moving and half of my belongings, and my family’s, are in one place, and the rest in another. But I do have internet so I’m not completely off the grid, though it was a close thing let me tell ya. My two elder kids nearly lost it. I mean, seriously. If the Zombie Apocalypse happened today they wouldn’t make it. I’m certain one, if not both, would throw themselves in front of the zombies because life is apparently not worth living without internet. They would never have survived the 80’s. Thank god they have me for a mother and not their grandmother. We were thrown outside and told to go play and not let back in unless our bladders were about to burst. They have no idea how lucky they are.

Because of the chaos involved I told myself I wasn’t going to participate this year. I have so much to do and I’m so utterly exhuasted every day in every way right now and I felt that there was just no way I’d be able to keep up. And then I logged in today and decided to just go see what the prompt was…

Yeah, I fell off the wagon…hard.


NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) Day 1:

Write a lune. (Click the link.)



For Hasty, because today is her birthday:

A Happy Birthday Lune

By Jessica Scott

Because you were born

I’m happy;

That’s why we tell you.

And because I couldn’t stop there…

The Silence of a Thousand Words

By Jessica Scott

It’s what I don’t say

that matters,

so pay attention.



The Broken Promise

By Jesi Scott

They promised no tears,

but he lied…

and he cried for her.


Well played, NaPoWriMo, well played.

xo Jesi

P.S.  I am NOT doing the A-Z Blogging Challenge this year. Truly. One challenge per move is enough.
