OctPoWriMo Day Twenty-Four - Moving, Sewing, Writing Stories

Today's prompt for OctPoWriMo was to pull inspiration from the shows, "So You Think You Can Dance," "Project Runway" and/or "Ink Master." "Project Runway" was a guilty pleasure of mine years ago. I enjoyed seeing what the designers would put together during each weekly challenge. Which is why I enjoy NaPoWriMo and OctPoWriMo, because it's fun to see what people come up with with each prompt, I feel the way about LinkedIn's Poetry Challenge.

Today, I thought that I'd touch on "So You Think You Can Dance," "Project Runway," and "OctPoWriMo" and put it all in one poem, talking about how each different activity can tell a story.

Moving, Sewing, Writing Stories

He dances
So fluidly
Free of all inhibitions
Moving, gliding and grooving
Around the dance floor
Telling his story
Through dance

She sews
A vision of her design in mind
She sketches it out first
To see how it may look
To the eye
Assembled as she cuts fabric
In pieces
And putting them together
Creating shapes in a pattern
Of a gown
Tell her story
Through design

I write
Words dance around my mind
Hours are spent pondering
How to bring them together
What message I want to convey
What mental picture I want to create
Often told in rhyme
Words on a page
Telling my story
Through poetry

October Poetry Writing Month Day Eighteen - Colorful Leaves

I'm just coming home from a long day out, so I thought I'd write a Haiku so I don't go a day without writing a poem.

Colorful Leaves

Colorful leaves fall
Landing on the gray walkways
Decorating them

OctPoWriMo Day Seventeen - A Summer Day

Today's prompt for October Poetry Writing Month was to play or arrange words using a Word Generator or with Magnetic Poetry. I decided to try using Magnetic Poetry since I spent years avoiding it. I was able to come up with something during my lunch hour. I hope you enjoy it. :-)
