NaPoWriMo – Day 29

Here we go – the penultimate post for NaPoWriMo 2013…and I’m still having a hard time believing I manged thus far ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ˜› I’m also happy that taking part in this challenge helped me find my way back to the poet inside ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

This picture was taken at a Butterfly Parkย en routeย 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 andย iridescentย colorsย fascinateย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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?!

  1. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
    And have a great time in May. I’ll miss you!

    1. 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 food๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I was…I’m rather a scaredy-cat for all my bluster ๐Ÿ˜› 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Consider “Holy fazole” my departing gift to you ๐Ÿ˜‰
        (Thanks for the Mexican food craving, BTW)
        I’ll wait with baited breath ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. Holy Fazole!! Now I’m afraid I’ve got yours hopes up too much! I know, I know…couldn’t help myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Have just downloaded a free sample of The Name of the Wind to read in a bit!

      3. It should serve you well during your travels. There’s lots of pages there ๐Ÿ™‚ But seriously, the series is not finished and when you reach the last page of book two, it’s kind of heart-breaking ๐Ÿ˜‰ So glad you’re in love with it!!

      4. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. 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.

    1. Thanks SS ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so glad you’re going to keep it up coz you write so well ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Good idea! Some of the appealed to me but didn’t want to take on the added pressure in my first challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰ will look forward to yours ๐Ÿ™‚
