NaPoWriMo : Twilight

The prompt for the NaPoWriMo “Our optional prompt for today is to write a poem that contains at least one kenning. Kennings were metaphorical phrases developed in Nordic sagas. At their simplest, they generally consist of two nouns joined together, which imaginatively describe or name a third thing. The phrase “whale road,” for example, could be used instead of “sea” or “ocean,” and “sky candle” could be used for “sun.” The kennings used in Nordic sagas eventually got so complex that you basically needed a decoder-ring to figure them out. And Vikings being Vikings, there tended to be an awful lot of kennings for swords, warriors, ships, and gold. But at their best, they are suprising and evocative. I hope you have fun trying to invent your own. Happy writing! ” Well I did attempt one, here it is –


The dolphins, jump along the whale road,

The birds fly against the tree breaker,

The Sky Jewel making way for the moon,

Soon the little Night light will replace the orange hue,

The fate of the day that’s gone or the promise of a new dawn,

Twilight can be whatever imagine, whatever you want.
