NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 1

Last year, I tried NaPoWriMo for the first time, thinking it would be good for me to step outside my comfort zone of writing fiction to try poetry instead. I managed to produce a poem every day in April.

This year, I’ve decided to challenge myself again, although I didn’t get the chance to update my blog with the poems written on April 1st and 2nd, so I’m adding those entries now.

April 1st is a short poem inspired by an animated version of “Seductive Fantasy” by Sun Ra and his Arkestra

Colours swirl into

sounds and shapes, alive

with the tempo of

summer.

Music weaves its way

around circles of

light, bubbles of

existence

under a sky the

colour of

jazz.
