NaPoWriMo22 Day 28 — Prompt from napowrimo.net: Write a shape poem. Perhaps not quite a shape poem, but it’s what I’ve got for today! I use canva.com for my graphic poems and upload them as images. It’s easier than trying to create something in Word. Peace to your ♥!
Your comments are music to my ears: Wonderful! Great poem! Well done! I want to add a D.C. al Fine to every one. And even if I’ve heard it all before, Would you mind composing more?
In an anonymous time, in a nowhere place, I stipple the flat surface of the earth with polka dots.
Ecru, olive, umber, ebon feet rise up, join hands, dance across abandoned touch screens into a third dimension.
Here, now, I face the world: now, here, while the notes swirl round and round and round.

The Helen literary magazine held poetry competitions, offering several photos and asking participants to write in response to one or more of them. I don’t recall the exact photos, but I’m thinking hands/accordion player/polka dots. A strange poem, but I like it. Peace to your ♥!
I can go months without the urge to write a poem, then be struck with a burst of verbosity. Like now. Eleven poems in 36 hours. Some during the night, bright spots in otherwise disappointing sleep. A few inspired by previous prompts, which I’m posting pronto. Others that might fit later prompts, ready to post without anyone’s being the wiser. Peace to your ♥ !
