Good morning and welcome to day thirteen of NaPoWriMo.
Itâ€™s Friday the 13th â€” spooky! Donâ€™t let it through you off your poetic stride! Maybe 13 will turn out to be your lucky number.
It is spooky because both NaPoWriMo and Mindful Poetry asked us to write a ghazal today. Of course I had to have some fun. Here is to lucky thirteen.
A sense of foreboding to number thirteen
if it lands on a Friday, beware of thirteen.
Â Steer clear of black cats, ladders and mirrors
to be safe on this day numbered thirteen.
Â April is here and poets will glean
verses and script in spite of thirteen.
Â An iceberg tore a hole through Titanic
sunkÂ in the oceanÂ two days after thirteen.
Â When rhyming is hard try not to panic
and you wonâ€™t fallÂ prey to number thirteen.
NaPoWriMo said to write a ghazal
Mindful Poetry did as well â€“ Itâ€™s lucky thirteen!
