National Poetry Month

NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.

NaPoWriMo, founded in 2003, when poet Maureen Thorson decided to take up the challenge. She modeled this  after NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Ms. Thorson has challenged other  poets, like herself,  to join in on the fun. And since it exists, the participants in NaPoWriMo  have grown every year, and many writers’ organizations, local, national and even International, have joined NaPoWriMo activities.

I’m not participating this year. However, I love to write poetry and plan to add a few poems throughout the month to celebrate.  I hope you enjoy my  poetry.

Shirts and skins on the battlefield

Sweat shiny luster

Muscle tensely bulging

Agile resilient angels

Adam in his birth


Opposing fractions

Forcing wells

Pushing shoving

testosterone pouring

male sex soaring


In the trenches,

fighting for position

tempers flaring

cursing ,swearing,

yelling, to again advantage

as war rages on concrete havens


Young bulls head butting, primal

Elbows  flying

Jabbing, stabbing

clothes ripping

struggling, gaining

the prize. Trash talking


Young Lions roaring,  fallen prey avoiding

Man, in his natural element

Warriors on display
