Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter M

NaPoWriMo: A poem that addresses itself or some aspect of itself.

I’m not sure if I met the prompt’s guidelines but I feel I covered the IDEA of the prompt. Hope you like it. I wrote a Minute Poem, a 12-line poem consisting of 60 syllables in STRICT iambic pentameter. There are 3 stanzas formatted ย into 8/4/4 syllables per line. Yes, I know. Here I am complaining about Sapphic poetry and iambic meter and there I am CHOOSING to write in iambic meter. But, I think I may have it figured out after that Sapphic poem. Anyway, this one was easy. My M word is Message and Minute, hence why I chose the Minute Poem.

Message From A Poem

By Jessica Scott


My heart I give to you in verse;

My love, the words

I bleed in ink.


My soul becomes the book you read;

Some leaves are torn

And some are blank.


But I will be here when youโ€™ve gone,

Your name Iโ€™ll keep

Engraved in stone.

Jesi Kay
Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

  1. I sort of loved this prompt ๐Ÿ™‚ but i see its all differently interpreted…lol but still holds good,this one.
    Ohh I should have written for this ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thank you! I didn’t really do a poem speaking to itself, like the prompt said to do. But I liked the idea of a poem literally speaking to you, instead of figuratively.
