NaPoWriMo #27 Mr. G.M. Pitcher


Thank you for being my partner

Mr. G.M. Pitcher

I fell in love with you Mr Pitcher

as soon as I held you in my hand

When I held you I envisioned 

you photographed with fresh flowers 

You with newly snipped wildflowers 

looked so handsome on a tree stump

And even more handsome in the windows

colored by the light of the sunset

Later, the angle of the morning sun

thankfully illuminated you both

Sincere thanks for being an artful partner

Mr. G.M. Pitcher

The National Poetry Writing Month #NaPoWriMo challenge #27 almost defeated me but ultimately it was fun. 

The challenge was to write a “duplex.” 

A “duplex” is a variation on the sonnet. 

Like a typical sonnet, a duplex has fourteen lines. It’s organized into seven, two-line stanzas. The second line of the first stanza is echoed by (but not identical to) the first line of the second stanza, the second line of the second stanza is echoed by (but not identical to) the first line of the third stanza, and so on. The last line of the poem is the same as the first.


  1. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘brava!! Wonderful poem ❤️!! Well done ❤️

  2. Lovely composition. Very well written

  3. Wow, I got lost just trying to understand the directions! I do really like your poem as I am such a flower bouquet lover especially in a charming old pitcher! πŸ’•πŸ‘ Wendy, I admire your photography combined with your poetry! - G.W.
