Tomorrow begins the A to Z Blog Challenge and NaPoWriMo

I am going to start the Blogging from A to Z Challenge tomorrow!

A month long blog where each day (not counting Sundays, a day of rest, dontcha know) I will blog using each each of the alphabet as my focal point/muse. This should be interesting! I am excited for a new challenge. Tomorrow is 'A' and oh the possibilities. I have not tried this blog challenge before, so we shall se what happens.

I seem to do do really well with the random ideas/topics. Challenge accepted!

Also, I am going start NaPoWriMo.

This is National Poetry Writing Month. This month I will be writing a poem a day based on the prompts at the site linked above. This is something that I thrive in. Poetry, I mean! I am a poet to the core. I love the challenge of writing words in form, telling a story in a short form, and playing with words. The pre-prompt for today is to write an Ekphrasis Poem, or a poem inspired by a work of art. This is an easy choice, "Starry Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh.

A reminder of the sonnet scheme: a-b-a-b, c-d-c-d, e-f-e-f, g-g

 The Live Sky (or The Sworls of Blue and Yellows Alive)

The sworls of blues and yellows alive
that sail like boats across the painted skies.
With a pulsing rhythm that will revive,
the images deep within my own eyes.

The lonely man behind the masterpiece
whom breathes life into the vibrant colours;
That he, in his pursuits never will cease
in his joyous dappling of his ardours.

With his curling strokes that his hand painted,
in what are the most famous airy swirls
that makes one almost fully acquainted
with this piece some consider a pearl.

Yes, I see the sky above seem to hum
with Van Gogh's, his power, the most awesome.

This is going to be an interesting month what with the writing/blogging projects and the theatre project this month. I never do anything simple. And this will keep me on my toes, Dear Readers! So, what's your favourite painting, or artist.  I love Van Gogh and Waterhouse.

Join me on this journey, Dear Readers and check other the other A to Z bloggers here: A to Z Challenge!

  1. Good Luck in doing two challenges, wow impressive, but if that poem is an example of your writing then I'm sure it will be a breeze for you.
    Look forward to seeing you on the trail...On the Ato Z Challenge Maggie@expatbrazil.
