Oh ya, the final poem of NaPoWriMo 2009 - welcome #30

For today's prompt, I want you to write a farewell poem. After all, we are saying farewell to another wonderful National Poetry Month. Say farewell to this month; say farewell to a vacation spot; say farewell to a bad relationship; say farewell to work; say farewell to school; say farewell to saying farewell even. Hopefully, I won't be saying farewell to you; please stay in touch and let me know of your successes as we keep poeming toward the horizon

Saying Goodbye

Because .

And good news for anyone who wants to write a poem a week, Robert will be posting prompts every Wednesday on his blog. The next one starting on May 6th

Thanks for tolerating my obsessions this April. I appreciate you for hanging on through the good poems and the bad.



  1. What a lovely closing poem to NaPoWriMo/PAD. I have to write my last one soon.

    I'm a little sad to see NPM go.
    *sniff* *sniff*

  2. And the acronymns. I'm sad to see those go, too.

  3. I know, it's been a long short month! It's kind of amazing to do such an experiment. You definitely got some keepers from your month!

    But yes, sniff sniff, we get our lives back -

    Happy May!

  4. These are all the goodbyes that you never really give a thought to, not really, or at least not consciously. It's nice to see them here, nice to be reminded.

  5. It’s a prayer
    to step out of bed every morning
    knowing you may be the one receiving
    the get well card or perhaps the one
    signing her name.
    I think that this is a wonderful passage - it resonates with me so much right now at this particular moment in my life. This poem really came to me at the right time.


Always love to hear from you...and the anonymous option is open for those feeling shy.
