NaPoWriMo: Golden

Aaaaaand, here is my first entry for NaPoWriMo!

All righty, as you know, I have decided to take the challenge of not only Camp NaNoWriMo but also NaPoWriMo! I even made a prompt list (below) which you can follow if you wish. 🙂

NaPo’s official site is also doling out daily prompts, if you prefer to follow that one.

But without further ado, I give you “Golden,” a prompt (and poem) inspired by Anne Elisabeth Stengl’s book Golden Daughter.

Dot, dot, dot (Feb. 25, 2020)

Golden daughter, girl of gold
Why is your smile so dull?
So wide, dangerous, and cold?
Would you shine again, if you could?

Golden daughter, girl of gold
Why deal out death out of icy cause?
Is sacrifice, protection, too bold?
Would you bear life, if you could?

Golden daughter, girl of gold
Why do you hide behind your blindfold?
Devotion is not love—only something sold
Would you submit your soul, if you could?

Golden daughter, girl of gold
A tale generations and eons have told
Of rusted metal and hidden mold
Renewed to shine treasures untold

And there it is, April!

Wonder how long people will last before they tire of my badly punctuated poetry….

Anyway, I cannot waiiiiit to see y’all’s poems if you’re doing it!! 🙂 🙂 <3<3

See you all tomorrow!

  1. HAHAHA about the badly punctuated poetry. I am so so guilty of that.

    But this poem is so prettyyy. I like that you used gold to describe a heartless/cold girl instead of something more cliche, like steel or even silver. Very pwetty.

    1. Awww, thank you!! But don’t give the credit to me. It was inspired by Stengl’s beayoooootiful book! 🙂 If you like this, you will LOVE that


  2. Love the poem! It’s a great topic idea. Poems inspired by books are often amazing. =) And I am horrible at punctuation in poetry too. xD

    Can’t wait to see what this month has in store for your poetry. =D
