Day 10 NaPoWriMo2017

Standard

Today’s prompt is a pen portrait. But I also decided to use the Magic 9 form from yesterday to challenge myself to use formal rhyme scheme,which I often resist. So today is an actual nine-liner.

Sister

Nearly a decade ahead

Head start and headstrong

Science projects, hours’ long piano practice, well-read

Latin homework spread upon her green desk

Portable Remington typewriter, paper threaded

Poems typed, sent to Breadloaf and beyond

Venturing towards goals and godhead

Showing me how woman can belong
