Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

OctPoWriMo Day 1

 I didn't participate last year because I was having such a tough time. This year I feel like a completely different person, lighter, freer and more myself. I'm really looking forward to writing poetry with the other participants of OctPoWriMo

The prompt for day one is, Shine Your Light and the poetry type is, free write. I decided to free write and see what falls to the page.

I dance upon the carpet, 

moving my hips,

shaking things up as I invite my muse to join me. 

My heart is more open than it has ever been, 


the shadows are welcome too as 

without them I'd not be able to see the light. 

My light leaks out of my 

broken places, 

reminding me of where I've been, 

of what I've endured, 

but that I don't have to stay there, 

in the dark because to grow 

I need the light. 

I need the now. 

Smiling into the sun, 

I'm open to where the light leads me 

on this journey of words 

and I'm letting more light in.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll share your word love below.




  1. I love the idea of light entering our bodies as dance.

    1. The prompts are on octpowrimo.blogspot.com daily. If you sign up to receive notifications from the blog you will get them in your email.

  2. How do we get the promos daily. I don’t see an email or message or text. I searched for this

    1. That should read “prompts”

  3. Morgan, this is beautiful. Welcome back. :)
