The prompt for day 6 is to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two. You might break to emphasize (or de-emphasize) sounds or rhymes, or to create a moment of hesitation in the middle of a thought. 

I found the prompt quite interesting and thought of having some fun with it. I hope it brings a smile on your face too 🙂

Poem: Unforeseen Pauses

 

some

short

phrases

some illogical

B

R

E

A

K

S

some really long sentences that keep flowing like a river yearning to mingle in an ocean

some absurd

weird

thoughts that

keep thumping my

head

all the time

is what

I plan to

write for

today as

I

wish to

move

out of

my comfort

zone today breaking

the monotony of

discipline as I am a perfectionist and I hate inconsistencies

and I always endeavor for meaningful pauses

in my

poem so here

I

am adhering to

the prompt

of

NaPoWriMo

for day

six

today and I

comprehended that life

also often

exhibits

such

episodes of unforeseen

P

A

U

S

E

S

so let’s

revel in those as well and take them in our stride

stretch our comfort zone and seek

our

learning from

those
