#AprilPrompts is Back! – Well, Sort of…#NaPoWriMo14

4-2013- APRILPROMPTS HASHTAG BUTTON

Hiya,

The second annual #AprilPrompts is back…well, without the prompts! I got side-tracked, knee-deep in courses, and didn’t properly organize #AprilPrompts2014 for National Poetry Month.

I had been chomping at the bit for a course in rhyme and jumped at the chance of taking famed poet, Renee LaTulippe’s Inaugural Lyrical Language Lab. Of course, it had to be this month.

Then, I also committed to Angie Karcher’s new RhyPiBoMo (Rhyming Picture Book Month), where when you check in, not only do you get a lesson in rhyme and poetry forms, there’s a bonus guest post by a distinguished author!

Long story short…I’m writing at least one poem a day, so I figured why not post using prompts from elsewhere?

Here’s my first attempt at a limerick:

 TIGHT QUARTERS

 

There once was a boy from Manila,

who wanted his own pet gorilla.

His hut was too small,

for a mammal so tall.

So he settled for a chinchilla.
