Here we go – the penultimate post for NaPoWriMo 2013…and I’m still having a hard time believing I manged thus far 🙂 I’m really proud of myself coz I’m generally a great starter but a poor finisher – I get bored easily and restless even quicker 😛 I’m also happy that taking part in this challenge helped me find my way back to the poet inside 🙂 I had, well not forgotten, but buried her deep beneath all the other labels that define who I am. Now that she’s had her time to shine – I’m happy and so is she 😀
This picture was taken at a Butterfly Park en route from Phoenix to Vegas. I forget the name, but the Monarchs were in town and boy aren’t they beautiful?! I cannot believe I spent most of my childhood screaming and running around like a headless chicken every time I saw a moth or butterfly that had wandered into the house drawn by the lights!! Now their powdery velvet wings and iridescent colors fascinate me, and although I still don’t like to get too close (it’s just a thing I have :P), I have no issues getting close enough to take pictures 😉
Metamorphosis is one of my favorite words in the English language! It’s a lyrical way of talking about change, and once again, a word with positive connotations! Positive Change – What’s not to like?!

Holy fazole it’s almost May! Only one more day and you successfully rose to your challenge? Wonder what you’ll choose for your final inspiration?
Metamorphosis is a poetic word, and you’ve put it to good use. Having a hard time believing you ran from little flutter-bys 😉
And have a great time in May. I’ll miss you!
First of all am requesting permission to add ‘Holy Fazole’ to my vocab!!! That is a phrase after my own heart and for reasons unknown has just reminded me of Mexican food😳😉
I was…I’m rather a scaredy-cat for all my bluster 😛 I’m going to miss you too! I hope to check in online at least a few times during the trip but will have to depend heavily on free wi-fi connectivity!
I’m actually done writing tomorrow’s post but you’ll just have to wait and see 😉
Consider “Holy fazole” my departing gift to you 😉
(Thanks for the Mexican food craving, BTW)
I’ll wait with baited breath 😉
Holy Fazole!! Now I’m afraid I’ve got yours hopes up too much! I know, I know…couldn’t help myself 😉
Have just downloaded a free sample of The Name of the Wind to read in a bit!
You must keep me posted 🙂
I’m hooked!!! To Kingkiller I mean!!! Can’t thank you enough for bringing I to my notice 🙂 Just my kind of read!
It should serve you well during your travels. There’s lots of pages there 🙂 But seriously, the series is not finished and when you reach the last page of book two, it’s kind of heart-breaking 😉 So glad you’re in love with it!!
It’s a trilogy I see! I hope the 3rd book will be out just as I finish the first two! But for now….am happy to dive into Day One 🙂
Proud of you! I too am a strong starter and a poor finisher in this sort of thing. I think I’m behind by four poems, and so will keep it up into May, just to fulfill my personal 30-day goal. But I’ve enjoyed it so much, I may just keep it up indefinitely. It’s a great practice, and I’m grateful to you for introducing me to NaPoWriMo.
Thanks SS 🙂 I’m so glad you’re going to keep it up coz you write so well 🙂 and I’m so happy to have met you!
I think I’m going to keep it too! I was thinking of doing maybe a weekly Haiku or poem after I’m back from vacation. I didn’t use the prompts this time but I would like to as and when the bug strikes in the future!
Happy writing 🙂
Wait, there were prompts????
Yes! I’ve seen them mentioned on several posts! They would be here I think http://www.napowrimo.net
Aw, cool! I may have to go back to do the prompts for next month!
Good idea! Some of the appealed to me but didn’t want to take on the added pressure in my first challenge 😉 will look forward to yours 🙂
