NaPoWriMo: Day 21
Yesterday Brenda found her word list in a poem. I found mine in a song. And although both poem and song were about deep, life altering love, neither one of us chose to use that word in our different lists. So today, I’m going to let you pick the words. I want you to choose one to three words to fill in the blank/s for this phrase:
Then use that new phrase as your title. Be humorous, sincere, wishful, or even demanding. Remember, a title is a sort of lead in, a definition, even a synopsis of what is to come. Perhaps a trailer to peak the interest of your reader/s, or a straight on declaration of a deeply held personal truth. After you’ve decided on a title, write the poem.
A FLIPPING NUISANCE
A pain in the neck;
it leads to complications
and messes up your life.
It gives you joy one minute
drives you nuts the next;.
Can be a happy place
and then the loneliest.
I think I’ll manage better
When I wrote up the prompt, I didn’t have anything particular in mind. Yet this title jumped up and refused to leave. I tried other things, but elephants don’t move unless they want to.

I have a three day weekend from work (in observance of a city-wide “Fiesta” holiday), so I’m not sure I’ll be posting from my phone over the weekend (unless I venture out to find a hot spot). So, for now…here’s Day 21. I’ll be back when I can to catch up on reading.
