NaPoWriMo 2015

The only time I ever seem to shake life into this blog is when I’m publishing poetry for NaPoWriMo. I know I should write more, and honestly, I plan to start this thing called Ask Kim (because questions are the best little toys in the world), linked to my ( Ask anything, but I won’t answer everything, and not necessarily in chronological order.

With regards to NaPoWriMo, I know I’m starting this late, haha. I was away in Europe during the first week and preparing for it prior to that, so I never really got to sit down and right. Now that I’m back, however, I’ll be posting daily (at least that’s the plan). I really hope I can complete it this year. At least I’ll definitely be inspired for the first few days because I’ll be working on a project of sorts haha. Once it’s been given, I’ll update you guys on it 😀


Day 13 – Red Ribbon

Its vibrancy holds more warmth

Than the dull grey of a factory scarf –

Like a cross of summer aster

And pliant braids of tough fiber,

It is the gentle touch of hardworking hands

That work a bow into a girl’s hair strands

It wraps ‘round contours, perfectly fitting,

Molding, melding, yet still form retaining –

As natural, for intersections

Between second and third dimensions

It gathers all into their niches

Without the sting of stitches,

And keeps tight – though unlike lock and key,

The right tug will open the box of mystery

Its knots can be undone, its ends frayed

But we consider this the style with which it was made

Regardless of the fashions, it completes every gift

Enveloping love with love; beautiful, every bit

This was written as a gift to a friend. I’ll update this post after it’s been read. 😀
