It is the third day of NaPoWriMo and here is today’s prompt. The challenge today is to write a list poem in which all the items are made-up names. If band names don’t inspire, how about a list of titles for romantic novels? Or new television cop dramas? They can be as over-the-top as you like, because that’s (at least) half the fun. 

Here’s my take at it 😉

 

So I surmised I’ll make a list

Of books that I want to read

Before angels come to take me home

And I wouldn’t have a chance to elope

 

 

The Way of the Bow

Like the Flowing River

 

Unlimited Power

Secrets of World Class

 

The Magic of Believing

Awaken the Giant Within

 

Warrior of the Light

Outliers

The Power of Positive Thinking

 

Get the Life You Want

The Supreme Gift

 

Forty Rules of Love

The sense of an ending

 

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

The Secret

Blink

 

The Gifts of Imperfection

Steve Jobs

The Five People you meet in Heaven

 

 

So you see

The list is quite a bit

And I’ve learned

It grows like my grit!

 

 

So someday

It’ll be compiled as a book

For I love and love

reading books

 

 

I admire these authors

I adore these titles

I enjoy these topics

I fall for recitals

 

 

And I wish

I had the time

To read poetry

Fiction and crime

 

 

Time to imbibe all the words and phrases

Time to imbibe all the quotes and pages

That these books of life imply

Then with the angel I would merrily fly!
