#NaPoWriMo: A Poem A Day – Day 7

Hi everyone! Today is day seven of the national poetry month competition.

Here’s my offering >>>


[Instructions:] Write a poem that argues against, or somehow questions, a proverb or saying. They say that “all cats are black at midnight,” but really? Surely some of them remain striped. And maybe there is an ill wind that blows some good. Perhaps that wind just has some mild dyspepsia.

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”


They say absence makes the heart grow fonder

Even as you roam and wander

Further and further from sight, and mind, and me

Alas, your face got lost in the fog of my faulty memory!


Have a wonderful day, everyone, and I’ll see you tomorrow with Day Eight on the NaPoWriMo 30 Day Poetry Challenge 🙂

  2. I’ve always wondered about that phrase, and you’ve provided the answer. Well done, Harmony. I love this poem! 😊

  3. Haha! This is awesome, Harmony! I’ve heard that proverb with an attachment. Absence makes the heart grow fonder…of someone else. 😉 Great poem! 🙂
