⏳NaPoWriMo 🫖April 🌱2023🌺Day 1

#NaPoWriMo #April #2023

 Here’s our own prompt (optional, as always) for the first day of Na/GloPoWriMo. They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but they never said you can’t try to write a poem based on a book cover — and that’s your challenge for today! Take a look through Public Domain Review’s article on “The Art of Book Covers.” Some of the featured covers are beautiful. Some are distressing. Some are just plain weird (I’m looking at you, “Mr Sweet Potatoes”). With any luck, one or more of these will catch your fancy, and open your mind to some poetic insights. Happy writing!(©MaureenThorson)


modern book covers

bright yellow, pink and blue
the song takes me back

the camper van says freedom
and the music sings the story
open me, the book demands
