Today I am thinking a lot about poetry and how we play with words. I am looking into the future of when October will be here and we will have another opportunity to write a month of poetry. I very much enjoyed participating in this years #NaPoWriMo and #AtoZchallenge in April and creating #AtoZPoetry. If you participated, how did you do? Were you able to write a poem a day or were you like me and had to play catch up in the last moment?
I went looking through the Shadow Poetry site to see what poetry form would inspire me for today’s Poetry Prompt and I found the Katauta. I liked that it is a form for love poetry. When you write poetry do you ever create love poems for your significant other? Love poetry isn’t just for February.
Free write all of the things you love about your lover/wife/husband/companion/life mate. If you don’t have a lover make one up and write all of the things you would want in a lover. Or… you can write of your own inner sweetheart.

“Sometimes poets write what we wish we could say, and they tell us what we need to know. The poems in Wild Woman Waking lead us to a place where we can proudly refuse to be “bent and broken”; instead, they document a journey to self-acceptance, peace, and understanding – where in a community of women, we celebrate and dance as Mud Women. We become women of spirit and keepers of our own keys.” ~Beth Camp
