November PAD 30: Leaping

Today’s Prompt: Write an “against all odds” poem

Today’s Poem:


You size them up,
these giants of doubt,
cowardice, and unbelief
and most times,
they are nothing more than
when you open your mouth
to scream as you free-
fall into arms of hope, faith,
and love.

Today’s Ponderings: Yay!  We made it to the end of another November Poem-A-Day Challenge. I appreciate all the lovely comments and encouragement from everyone because without your feedback, I would not have completed 37 poems in 30 days. Thank you!

So, now what? What am I going to do with all these drafts? I have to get them manuscript ready by December 31, 2011:

  1. Select 20 poems from the month
  2. Edit the poems
  3. Compile the poems into a manuscript 
More details on the way…
