#12 NaPoWriMo, True Worship…

Hello my lovely friends. Today’s challenge is to write an index poem. I honestly had an awful time with this style and finding inspiration… Maybe today was just a bad day. But I did try. Enjoy.

True Worship

Walking in your ways.
Trusting you for all my wants.
You are my mighty arm in war,
And my well of holy water.
I do give thee all my will.
You are my wisdom.
Listening for thy welcomed words.
I see your majestic works,
In this present world.
I sing and worship,
For you are my King.

This was really interesting and kinda weird for me to write. Honestly I didn’t enjoy it. I found it very… confining. But over all I’m glad I tried it. I can truthfully say I won’t ever write another poem like this. I may look for a word or a thought in the index but not the whole poem. Anywho now that I have reviewed this style of poetry. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Also I’m curious did any of you write an index poem and did you enjoy it? Let me know in the comments. Keep smiling, awesome sauce!!!

Ps. Lest you get the wrong idea. I love worshipping. I love the subject of my poem very much… I just don’t like the style in which it has been written. [=

      I had never heard of it either!!! You go to the index of a book and look under a word (or letter) and write a poem based off those words/phrases. It’s an interesting idea. I just couldn’t get it to flow and it seems a bit more logic/mathematical in process than I prefer in poetry. I’m more of a lyrical idealist in style, I’m not sure of that comes across at all in my writing. But that’s how I write. I don’t usually start from a logic standpoint. Anywho NaPoWriMo’s website explains it matter than I can. http://www.napowrimo.net/day-twelve-4/ you can also check out the comments on the post to see more index poems to get a feel for the style. I may try it again if I can ever find an inspiring index… but I seriously doubt it. ^_^
