Achievement unlocked! I’ve reached my writing goal of fifty pages, or rather, 50 poems during the month of April as part of Camp NaNoWriMo.
However, I’m nowhere near finished yet. There are more poems to write, and much work to do, to get this book of poetry organized, edited, and ready to publish.
In the meantime, I’ll just keep on writing, and if more poems happen, then so be it!
This was my first attempt writing a Haiku poem. I found it to be somewhat challenging, yet quite enjoyable, too. Of course, being me, I did a bit of research before just jumping in with both feet and going for it.
The contest runs from April 17th – April 25th, with the winner being announced on April 26th, 2019.

I’ve got a poem in my pocket,
Figuratively speaking that is.
Since I don’t go out much,
I won’t be sharing my words.
Except for here on social media,
Which spreads chat and memes,
To people all over the world.
So enjoy this poem for what it is,
And let your own mind run free.
Inspiration can strike anyone,
So let it.
Yup. It’s a campers life for me. At least for the next month. Springtime in April means NaNoWriMo. And as hinted at in my previous post today, the project I’ll be working on is a long overdue book of poetry. Tentatively titled, “Meanderings.”
