So, this whole NaPoWriMo thing has gotten off to a bad start for me. With the start of the challenge coinciding with the Easter weekend, I have had little to no time to sit and really think about poetry or writing at all.
Both my husband and I are members of our church choir and Easter Weekend for us began last Wednesday with an all-or-nothing rehearsal. This was followed by singing at a mass on Thursday evening.
The weekend itself consisted of choral accompaniment to three services for the Triduum: Good Friday at 3:00 p.m., Easter Vigil on Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. Needless to say, we have sung more than our share of Alleluias.
All this is to tell that I may need some time to either catch up with the NaPoWriMo challenge, or jump in at this point. I’ll have to see. I have not ruled out a graceful exit altogether, if the poetic muse has indeed left the building.
In the meantime, I have just about managed to keep things on an even keel over at “My Life In Runes”, so if you enjoy quirky haiku, high-tail it over there and check it out!
Thanks for reading, and a belated Happy Easter to all!
