Day 21 NaPoWriMo - Courage!

Courage!

NaPoWriMo - "Today’s (optional) prompt. Begin by reading Sarah Gambito’s poem “Grace.” Now, choose an abstract noun from the list below, and then use that as the title for a poem that contains very short lines, and at least one invented word."



Thanks to Shaun Hunter for the needlepoint illustration and idea that Courage feels more heartening when said with a french accent.















Courage!

Yell voyageurs

each morning.

Paddles glip

the river.


Nuthatch nesting

in the siding

Styrofoam bits

attached

when head

emerges.

Undeterred

by screaming

owl.

Cacophony

of construction

continues.


Voyageurs long

flown.
