I found the first one of spring
on my windowsill, just bee-ing,
when it should have been
meadowing with a swarm,
oceaning a roar,
pollening and sweetnessing
with honeyed kissing.
Instead, it’s dead,
Kim M. Russell, 30th April 2018
Bjorn is our host for the final day of April and the last poems of NaPoWriMo. As he says, today we have reached the end of madhousing and voicing and some of us should be proud overachievers who have written a poem every day in April. Bjorn wants to talk verbs, whose words that turn the wheels and are so much more interesting than other word classes.
Bjorn says, that the world of words is filling up with things, warehouses filling up with objects: innate and passive, they sit there, waiting for way too few verbs to put them in action. He has a solution – verbing. The word verb is a noun, but verbing a verb turns verb into verb. Bjorn says that we can do the same with almost any verb and he wants us to try it.
