I succeeded at getting more than 31 poems, but the theme of love fell apart. Many of them are related to love. Or it’s easy to see a connection (like with partnership).
But it’s a small number that actually stayed on topic.
For a tough month, I managed. I should definitely aim for a collection of prompts over just one. Different prompts every day recharge me enough to keep going.
My favorite poem from the month? [Big Brown Eyes] There’s comfort in the idea. My hope in just a few stanzas. Hope I’ll never see again.
Full list of poems from the month:
- Ball of Fur (Needs to be added to If Non Humans Could Talk…)
- Cuddlebug (Needs to be added to Non Human Best Friend)*
- Fool in Love*
- Love’s Free Fall*

* means it is clearly about love/includes love.
After this month of poems, I have decided I need to create a grief based poem book. I have so many grief based poems. It would probably do me well if I had them in a book on my shelf. So I can read it when I need a little time just letting the feelings hold me as they do far too often.
Side note: Cyro managed 17 poems this month. They did well all in all. I wish they were more success though.
