National Poetry Writing Month (also known as NaPoWriMo) is a creative writing project held annually in April in which participants attempt to write a poem each day for one month.

Maureen Thorson, a poet and publisher, developed the project in 2003 using her on-line blog. 

She started by listing the participating poets and has continued to run the project in April of every year. 

Anyone can join the project; you need a website to post your work at NaPoWriMo. However, there are other ways to post- such as Facebook and Twitter.

The prompt for a dry run on March 31 was writing about a picture from NY Metropolitan Museum of Art (prompts are posted on NaPoWriMo website).

The Cup of Tea

Looking forward to that cup of tea

With a little visit, just you and me

Strictly girl talk and catching up.

No one around to interrupt

Heads together; hearts are too.

Dear old friends- just me and you.
