The Answer, My Friend… – #NaPoWriMo23 – Day 16

#NaPoWriMo23, Other Poetry, Random poetry Add comments


I struggled with the prompt for Day 16:

“I challenge you to write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like.” [from here]

After a few attempts at describing other intangible things, I settled on the below.


I am not made to be still,
Or seen,
Or tamed.
I may not be gentle
Or properly predictable.
Nothing can defend against me
When I am angry.
You will not find me under a microscope
Don’t trust me to fly with you
With respect.


Let’s hope Day 17’s prompt inspires me more 😉 see you there…
