NaPoWriMo🎙📚22/04/22 Day 22,


And now for our prompt (optional, as always). In honor of today’s being the 22nd day of Na/GloPoWriMo 2022, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that uses repetition. You can repeat a sound, a word, a phrase, or an image, or any combination of things. Happy writing! Happy writing! (See what I did there . . . ?) – Maureen Thorson


I am totally happy with the repetition prompt today.🙂🙂🙂I have chosen an Anserine Poetry form which is a cross between a haiku and a renga. 🙂



Magic or mundane?
It is up to you to choose.
Magic lives inside

Magic lives inside
seek it out if you wish it.
It will answer you.

It will answer you
it waits like a coiled snake
with one eye open.

With one eye open,
it will answer the call, rise
up and up inside.

Up and up inside
like a Phoenix rising from
the cold grey ashes.

The cold grey ashes
will birth the spark of fire that
holds the magic close.

Holds the magic close
to set your true intention
to centre your core.

To centre your core
in the heart of your being.
Magic will be done.

Magic will be done.
Fire, salt, water and incense
offered to Aether.

Offered to Aether
the spell's fifth element
pentagram complete.

Pentagram complete.
Cast a circle out of time,
magic lives inside.

Magic lives inside.
It's up to you what you choose,
magic or mundane?
