Yearning: it’s one of those words, and emotions, that comes up regularly, yet that bears many fruits in our day to day lives, and in our writing. Enjoy digging deeply, creatively, and sweetly (or assertively or mysteriously or forlornly) around the topic of something that keeps you yearning. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

Imperfection is what separates us from the monsters that would have us sweat out perfection every time we breathed. I reject perfectionism philosophically, and I sleep with one eye open to track its movement when it enters my sphere. That is why I’m okay with having had to take a day off, yesterday, from building and designing a National Poetry Month prompt for me and those participating with the @3amblack community. I also had to forgive myself for messing up the alphabet. That’s right; I said messing up the alphabet. You see, this year, I decided to run through letters A-Z for inspiration for the daily prompts. While things ran smoothly for the most part, I did need a break, and it was taking that day that gave me just enough distance to see: I skipped right from V to X. So join me in banishing perfectionism, celebrating poetry, and pondering “Winsome Whirlwinds.” Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

Three great words for Day 23 of National Poetry Month – this time directly from the crew and hive-mind instead of just mine. Enjoy interacting and experimenting with xerosis / xebec / xenial.

There are things that change us; vicissitudes, if you will. Will you? Happy National Poetry Month, Day 22: Veritable Vicissitude. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

It’s day 21, and I am absolutely inspired by the power of words. What happens when a word is added to a word? What happens when words are selected to describe feelings? And what happens when a group of individuals gathers to build community around words, stanzas and the written expression? These were some of the questions and sentiments on my mind as I chose and designed today’s National Poetry Month prompt card. Hope you’re enjoying the journey. Happy writing! – Reza Rites
