#NaPoWriMo: A Poem A Day – Day 11
Hi everyone! Today is day eleven of the national poetry month competition. I missed yesterday, as my Saturday ended up being more full on than I’d anticipated.
Here’s my offering >>>
[Instructions:] Write a poem about a very large thing. It could be a mountain or a blue whale or a skyscraper or a planet or the various contenders for the honor of being the Biggest Ball of Twine.
Apple of your eye—
Baby’s first smile
How can such a tiny thing
Pummel your heart to mush
Tear your world wide open?
It’s the smallest biggest thing in the universe—
Today, the utter juxtaposition of the enormity of new life, which comes in such a small bundle, left me awestruck. I hope I’ve managed to share a little of that with you.
Have a wonderful day, everyone, and I’ll see you tomorrow with Day Twelve on the NaPoWriMo 30 Day Poetry Challenge 🙂
