For the ninth day Maureen Thorson suggests: "write a persona poem — a kind of dramatic monologue. . . . pick a character to inhabit — a person from history, an imaginary or mythical person (like Snow White or Zeus), or just someone you’re not (an Olympic marathon champion, perhaps? I know I’m not one of those), and write in their voice."
Okay, folks, here's Catherine's persona poem for Day Nine.
For his ninth-day prompt Robert Lee Brewer tells us: "write a shady poem. . . . It could be a poem that includes shadows and/or shading. It could be about a shady part of town or a shady person. Or well, something else."
For Day Nine, here's my something else . . . a shady persona poem!
Our featured poem-a-day site today is Waving at Satellites where Clarice's NaPoWriMo poems have been quirky and fresh all week . . . for example, today, an unusual portrayal of Sisyphus. And Clarice always pairs her poem with a striking visual image. Check it out!
That's it for us, over and out. Just a shade before midnight. Leave a comment below, won't you? In the comment box or, if you can't see that right now, click on the word "comments" with the number in front of it. See you on Day Ten. Ingat.
Added 15 April 2012: I forgot to note when I posted this that "Shady Hades" is comprised of linked haiku, or perhaps more precisely, linked senryu.
