30 Days and Nights

we wandered through    
the playing field of verse--    
dodging mines of cliche      
short-changed words;    
     
those unworthy offerings      
resulting from utter laziness      
     
The giants are appeased;    
poetry was a priority. . .    
as it should've been      
     
No more late night excuses      
encompassing fatigue      
Gone were the days      
that housed no poetry      
     
Nomadic were we      
wandering in the dessert      
seeking a country of accomplishment    
     
Now we rest, bask deservedly    
in the spoils of victory      
contemplating tomorrow      
     
how much editing it will bring      
with the memory of knowing      
you had it in you all along      
     
From this day forth      
you can continue despite doubt      
when you refuse to give up      
     
And we Veterans of the trade    
who've weathered the arid heat    
many, many years. . .?    
     
You're the very inspiration      
that urged Us on  
toward our own destination    
     
You are the fuel      
for NaPoWriMo's engine

Dedicated to all NaPoWriMo 2018 participants, particularly ImperfectedStone, rowantree, thepositivelydark, rosegold, Mel44, Samael, MisFitPoet89, and Thetravelingfairy for staying the course despite circumstance. It was truly inspirational to be a part of your first NaPoWriMo journey. Whenever you think you can't write, remember this time, and know you can.

And most of all, to the better-half of Us, my partner in all things, JohnnyBlaze, for his tireless efforts, support, encouragement, editing, and Love. I mean LOVE, Ladies ( and Gents ); 30 in 30 days Love. I'm honored and blessed. 💜📝💏
