#NaPoWriMo Day 3

Dark Knight
(Actor, Affleck),
Heed the call of Gotham!
This fan waits the next instalment,
Eager.

Day 3 of #NaPoWriMo and the prompt is to write a fan letter. I’m a huge fan of superhero movies so the choice was easy. I’ve heard that Ben Affleck is sitting on a script for a solo Batman film and I am so keen! While the latest Batman versus Superman flick has garnered a lot of attention for all the wrong reasons – it did one thing particularly well – and that was Affleck as Batman. Very impressed with his performance and excited to see what he will bring to the DC franchise next.

Trying a Traditional Cinquain format: five lines, 22 syllables in the pattern 2-4-6-8-2. This form was invented by Adelaide Crapsey, although I’m not sure she’d approve of this fan letter version. I look forward to coming back to the form later in the month with a more appropriate theme. Ahem.

I’d like to take a quick moment here to thank Maureen Thorson of http://www.napowrimo.net/ for the prompts – but especially for the extra material including:

1) the daily links to poets in translation – really enjoying exploring the works of people I would never have otherwise come across

2) this list of 50 poetic forms – can’t wait to try out a few more!
