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


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



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!
