Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo 2012 – Day 22 of 30 Poems in 30 Days – Detroit Central: A Periodical Poem

NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 22

With eight more days to go in this poetry challenge a sister is running on fumes! Usually if I’m freelancing and not following the prompts, my poems are the first things that come into my mind after I wake up and all I have to do is write them down, but not today folks. I was pressing and forcing the issue and quite frankly what I was coming up with was horrid! I would feel really bad subjecting that kind of writing on you so I thought I’d steal an idea from one of my blogging buddies, Sulekha Rawat, who so creatively wrote a poem using book spines. I switched it up and used periodical titles since I am also a magazine fanatic as well as a book lover. Thanks for the idea Sulekha! You saved my hide today girl!

Here is:

    Tameka, I am so glad you got an idea from me. I had stolen this idea from Chris, he is a very creative writer. Thank you for mentioning me, I didn’t think of this idea 🙂 Great poem…

  4. You’re welcome mamita! You inspire me all of the time. 🙂

    Lol @ the idea stealing! But it’s all good because you all came up with your own unique brands. This was great, Tameka. The titles flowed and you have really cool visual!

  6. Thanks girl! I am huffing and puffing toward that finish line! By any means necessary! 😉
