NaPoWriMo 2015, Day 1: Following Your No’s

Following Your No’s

It is not fuzzy and is not hot.
(It’s hard describing what it’s not.)
It has no eyeballs but has a mouth.
Cannot go up but prefers south.
When it takes a trip, you go along.
It’s lauded in many a poem and song.
It likes to run but has no feet,
asks no permission to leave its seat.
It has no cheek but is a Tongue.
When it’s a man, it is not young.
It is no planet but is a Moon,
I fear this poem can’t end too soon.
I’m tired of saying what it ain’t.
This negativity makes me faint.
If you don’t know what I’m describing,
it’s a lie that you are not imbibing.
It’s clear that you ‘re not listening–
not noticing that I’m glistening.
How many clues do you need to get?
It’s not just me who is all wet!!

The NaPoWriMo Prompt: A Poem of Negation–Write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not.

    Ahh, let’s see…this is not a negative remark. It is a said with a smile and positive vibes. I really liked your little poem. (But I could not figure out what it was that you were not describing.)

    Hi ABC. I answered your question on your blog so it won’t give away the answer here, although it doesn’t look like anyone else even tried to guess. Perhaps tomorrow…Thanks for reading and commenting…Judy

    Hi ABC. I just saw your message about the poem a day challenge about secrets, but I don’t see any pingback or url for the site. Did you forget something?
