Dear Friends and Fans of the Unreal:
April is NOT the cruelest month, it’s the most poetic month!
Welcome to NaPoWriMo — and the month of April madness that writing a poem a day will surely engender.
Find out about the April Poetry movement here.
Try it out and if you wish, post your poem here.
Poems, like stories, can be silly, and sometimes you can use what is right in front of you to play with words.
So party on!
Found triolet: be careful with iklear
Avoid trackpad and clickwheel:
Polish in vertical strokes beginning with a small section
On the left of your screen then move in small circles but
Avoid Trackpad and Clickwheel
(touched by so many treacherous digits, they can never be cleansed)
Support screen while cleaning polish until all residue disappears but at all costs
Avoid trackpad and clickwheel
Polish in vertical strokes beginning with a small section.
