Day 22 NaPoWriMo

Last week was school vacation and I kind of took a blogging and writing vacation, too. Oh, I checked in every day and even wrote a poem or two but I just needed a break.

As far as NaPoWriMo, I wrote way more than 30 poems this month but I didn't write every single day. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I have my kids write poems during Journal Writing and I write with them so that was 6 poems per week just for that, never mind the ones I wrote for all the blog prompts.

I wrote this one on Thursday April 17 during Block 3. The prompt was to write about a purchase.

I have gold
in my purse.
Every time
I open it,
I can see it
glowing.

Sometimes I take
that Borders
Gift Card out
of it’s little
red envelope
and run my fingers
over its smooth
surface.

Then when I replace
it, my whole
pocketbook shines.

I’ll use it to purchase
escape,
dreams,
healing.

When I stand
at the register,
the salesperson
will have to wear
sunglasses.
