Eternal #OctPoWriMo

Today wraps up 31 poems in 31 days, or OctPoWriMo. It has been a fun event, getting me back to writing again, and a bit of a challenge, too, as I reckon it should be. It is hard to say how well I’ll do after this month; the holidays and all are upon us and I tend to fall out of the writing-mode. Maybe this year will be different!


Come drink

Living waters

Whosoever desires

Eternal life freely given

By faith

We Create

This morning I ran across a haiku by Al the Author I really enjoyed. It also happened to be linked to a writing prompt I’ve been meaning to join in on but keep forgetting from The Secret Keeper

Well, there’s no time like the present (before I forget again!) to toss my poem in the writing-ring:

a gift
a handmade work
or a poetic verse
love is the reason we create
not coin

Unlike Al, I wasn’t able to get all five words in a haiku; kudos to him again for that!
