NaPoWriMo 2013 Day 30 : of Crows and Karma

a black crow-
doesn't every feather go high
in june?

1 to 30, A to Z

Marian at Real Toads gave us an alphabet challenge with these instructions: It's a simple challenge, really. Starting with the letter A every next word should start with the next letter of the alphabet.

Imaginary Garden With Real Toads

This was the most difficult prompt for me because I don't like restrictions. I decided to begin with the letter A , the next two words followed directly. Then I decided to spread the letters on the lines as if they are words in this way:
d..... e....... f...... g....... h....

i..... j......

The structure of modern haiku is: short(line), long, short.
Suddenly, I noticed the letter: F.
It can stand for: feather. All the other words followed directly.
What I liked about this prompt is that it teaches you to set your mind free from all burden you come with at the moment of writing.


  1. awwwww. every feather *does* go high in june!
