… And welcome back here to day 23 of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt lead us to write a poem describing letters. And I took the letters of the word ‘inspiration’ injected some drama into them and instilled them back here. The poem is clearly unedited and fairly simple too. So, have fun ambling through this verbose.
THE BATTLE DANCE OF ‘INSPIRATION’
I is the first to rise up and stand tall, taking the initiative to battle a crisis,
And N Tumbles head over heels, somersaults to join I, calling that there is no time like ‘now’.
S watches viciously, alert for any solution that might be found walking casually on the sidewalk
And P is a flag of unity and support, motivating all the letters to win their battle
And then I appears on the scene once more, to join R
Upon its steed, whose two legs trot forth impatiently, ready to conquer
A raises a mountain of possibilities and strategies to victory,
And along the way, recruits T, shaped like the sword that would destroy doubt.
And once more, the leader of the rebellion, I steps in, to ignite
The swelling self-confidence within O
And lastly N comes back to bid farewell, carrying it’s gentle warcry at its back-
To rise again and to stand tall and proud, even after falling down.
And this way, the letters of the word INSPIRATION
Reach out to us like words always do
Stirring in our hearts, with their unmoving dance, the spirit and flame of inspiration.
