Cardinal Poetry Points. InNaPoWriMo Day 20.

cardinal pointsThere were

20 days.

Under silent autumn

golden April spreads a subtle light.

(Southern season)


They were missing:

4 days (ok, maybe 6 or 5).

Under a delicious nap rug

poems dreamt of floating dust.

(Southern vagrancy, I didn’t write a damn word)


There are culprits:

a bunch of days found guilty.

Under the inner court

my alter-ego stamps her judgment.

(Western psycho thing)


8, 10, 15 & 17 no poem was to be seen

under the InNaPoWriMo

nor 20, 21, 22, 23

in my tag cloud bin.

(Northern precise accountancy)


16 times came here

a spelling spell.

Under a whispering presence

poems were born this spirited month.

(Eastern mystical touch)


Just then life jumped in

under the rhythm of its tambourine.

Hospitals, blood donation,

hard school meetings,

unexpected family fights.

No open portal,

no poetry

no exit.







(No South, no North, no East, no West…

we’re all facing our destiny)
