NaPoWriMo 2015, Day 17: A late autumn evening in 1982 (a poem)

For Day 17, I went with the Writer’s Digest April PAD Challenge prompt, which was to write a swing poem…

Relax and swing
sway back and forth
in the dark

Close my eyes
feel the music
pure sensation

There’s nothing
more than this
only the dark

the music
and me

(17 April 2015)


  1. Nice take on the swing prompt, I wrote a terzanelle for the PAD today, but I didn’t post anywhere else yet.

    • Thanks! I wanted to avoid the obvious (e.g., playground swings, hanging objects, everyday expressions).
