NaPoWriMo 1

April 1, 2014

National Poetry Writing Month 2014This is going to be interesting. Due to a lack of internet connection I’m endeavouring to do this post on my phone using the Android app.

This is my first poem for NaPoWriMo 2014 and is short because I also think my battery will run out soon!

The last 12 months have been a bit of a roller coaster which culminated which my wife and I separating. It was a mutual decision but the actual physical separation was me moving out. This only happened in February; so it’s still too soon to provide perspective. Hence this poem.

First Spring


Today is the first day.

The first day of Spring.

The first Spring of separation.

The first separation.


Today is the last day.

The last day of promise

The last promise of together

The last together


Today is now.

The first now of me

The first me of independence

The first independence

  1. sorry to hear but it will get better, believe me I had some dark days when I moved out of a relationship. Though a little scared it is much better now in this new life of mine đŸ™‚ May your days be brighter. Good to see you back too.


  2. Sorry about the separation. Your poem captures the mixed feelings that come with the end of a relationship. I’m glad to see you back–and I’m looking forward to reading your poems this month.
