How have you been doing so far with NaPoWriMo? Have you managed to keep up? If not, perhaps today would be a good day to write some extra poems. Today’s prompt, continuing to the next letter in the alphabet, “D” is for “Dimeter.” This form is fairly simple: to write a poem where each line consists of two poetic feet. You can read an example¬†at the Poetry Foundation’s page on the form.

Feel free to share your poem (or a link to your poem) in the comments.
