Day 8 - H (AtoZ Challenge) and Day 9 - To do list of an inane self (Napowrimo)

Day 8 #AtoZChallenge

Art and affirmative alliteration of Day 8. I hadn't talked much about this section of my challenge. The intention was to reach out to young girls and everyone who needed to hear some positive and empowering affirmations each day. Just a humble alliterative effort. I wish we could all inspire each other everyday, place a helping hand, a shoulder to rest for a while, embrace to overcome the each other's pain, ease with laughter and a extend a bit of company to one another. In short, empower one another.


All my art works of AtoZ challenge have been done in acrylic inks and coffee wash. 

Day 9 #Napowrimo

to do list of an inane self

to live a life of a toad

to adapt on both lands

to fly high to bellow

to sink down and be mellow

to run miles a free bird

be the songbird and follow the stars

to creak open the secret doors of the poem has been removed to facilitate for future submission. Thank you for visiting.

Napowrimo prompt:

Our (optional) prompt for the day is to write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character. For example, what’s on the Tooth Fairy’s to-do list? Or on the to-do list of Genghis Khan? Of a housefly? Your list can be a mix of extremely boring things and wild things. For example, maybe Santa Claus needs to order his elves to make 7 million animatronic Baby Yoda dolls, to have his hat dry-cleaned to get off all the soot it picked up last December, and to get his head electrician to change out the sparkplugs on Rudolph’s nose.

I started nothing preplanned jotting down in a stream of consciousness mode and the writing took over. It came alive and took its own path and form.

Do let me know your views. What do you think of the Art & Alliteration segment? You can click on the AtoZChallenge/ Napowrimo tags to look at my earlier posts.
