NaPoWriMo 2016

Prompts for 2016
It's Napowrimo – national poetry writing month!
I'm not sure if I can keep up with this, but it is NaPoWriMo 2016! I didn't participate in 2015, I did in 2014 and in 2013.   I created poems for NaPoWro 2010 - not as faithfully as in 2009 (National Poetry Writing Month 2009). This year's prompts seem to be more topical, than having us work with particular forms. I like the challenge of a particular rhyme scheme and framework. 
We'll see how this goes! 

Yes, I'm running behind. It's a journey, not a race!

Alliteration's artful aid–
That is what the poet said:
"Sing a song of silliness":
"King and queen and court caress":
"Babies blow bubbles in a box":
"Seagulls sing when sewing socks":
"Down the drain the donkeys dive":
"Lions leap on lambs alive":
See? You needn't be a great
Genius to alliterate.
     –Willard R. Espy (From Words to Rhyme With - 1986)
