#OctPoWriMo 2013: Seeking Poetry


OCTPOWRIMO: Every day for one month I’ll collect inspiration from here and write/post a poem here. You can too!




THE PROMPT: Where does poetry hide? Some possible answers could be “in the dark dusty corner under my bed”, “in the extension of a dancer’s leg”, or perhaps “in the layered harmony of a Pentatonix song”. Look around you. Make a list of some of the unusual places that you find poetry. Use this list as the starting place for a poem. Maybe the list is a poem in itself. Or maybe you’ll find an entire poem tucked in between your sofa cushions. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

My entry:


Seeking Poetry



Within generous acts of nature


in the simplicity of a smile


in hard graft and yielding sweat


feeling tears shed, worthwhile.


Within good friendships and families


in finding you, knowing me


in the joining of hearts, won


is where I find poetry.

  1. You commented upon the simplicity of poetry (on my blog) and I am so in agreement… this is quite lovely for that and other reasons. But the imagery is clean and clear…

  2. Interesting, thoughtful poem that tells me we find creativity in both action and reflection — observing and being a part of all. My favorite line: “in finding you, knowing me”
