Congratulations, you made it all the way to the end of OctPoWriMo 2020! You are a success for writing poetry whether you wrote one poem, 31 poems, or somewhere in between. I hope you have enjoyed the journey, learned things along the way, expanded your poetry practice, and plan on continuing writing poetry throughout the year.

"Where there is light, there must be shadow,
where there is shadow there must be light."-Haruki Murakami
Here we go, the last prompts for OctPoWriMo 2020. Write for ten minutes about light, dark, and shadow. Our lives are filled with all three and you can't have one without the others. It is when we learn to embrace all three, that our voice grows strong and fills our words with heart. I haven't quite learned how to do this, but I'm working on it. Embrace all aspects of yourself, you are worthy, you are loved, and you are perfect in your imperfection.
Parallelogram de Crystalline - Instead of writing to the beauty of a lover, write of the light, dark, and shadow compared to nature or to each other.
Music and Dance:
I struggled to find the right song for this last prompt, but I finally found it.
