Hi everyone!  We have a guest host for today’s poetics, M!

LIMBO – Short Film by by SimonWildtVisuals.

Welcome to the last dayof Glo/NaPoWriMo.

For those of you who managed a poem a day this month – congratulations!

For those of you (like me) who didn’t – well, there’s always November. Or the rest of the year, for that matter – after all, who says you can’t continue to write every day?

Many of us will take some time off, however.

You might say, poetry will be in limbo.

Others will gyrate and twist and continue to stretch – to do the limbo, as it were, and keep writing.

So today, the prompt is Limbo – a word that has very different meanings.

Seamus Heaney wrote of Limbo, referenced here
as did Samuel Taylor Coleridge, here.
Whereas Daddy Yankee sang of it somewhat…. differently.


Are you in limbo, waiting, in some aspect of your life? for NaPoWriMo to finally end?

Do you contort yourself to meet this or that requirement?

You need NOT incorporate both meanings, or even use the word itself – use a synonym, if it suits you.

Since it’s been a long month, try to keep it under 100 words.

Or even try a “55” – see previous prompt here: https://dversepoets.com/2013/12/05/55shades/

Link your poem, then bend over backwards and visit your fellow poets.
