Hey guys, I’ve been under the weather; but I’m back now! I intend to finish my NaPoWriMo challenge even though April 30th was a couple of weeks ago.

NaPoWriMo’s prompt for April 24th: Write a poem that features walls, bricks, stones, arches, or the like. If that sounds a bit hard, remember that one of Robert Frost’s most famous poems was about a wall.



Laid out individual units bound by mortar,

Horizontally patterned by the hands of man.


Often left behind,

Like an echo in time.


Sturdy and sure, tired and true,

Qualities we look for in our fellow-man.


Holds together, supports and builds structure,

Protects its inhabitants against the storm.


We should emulate your characteristics,

Apply your support and protection to the people and environment.
